A year ago, these people were hailed as heroes. Homes and businesses had yard signs celebrating and honoring these people. What a difference a year makes:
Kaiser Permanente announced thousands of its employees across the country have been suspended after choosing not to get vaccinated.
The hospital reports that 2,200 of its nationwide employees have been placed on unpaid administrative leave as of October 1.
The suspensions are impacting two percent of Kaiser's entire U.S. workforce.
Company officials say those employees have until December 1 to either get vaccinated or risk losing their jobs permanently.
Next we'll be told we have to keep 'rona restrictions in place because of "overloaded" hospitals.
