Bodily autonomy is a sacred right here in oregon, from right-to-die to abortion. That this isn't being protected as an individual freedom illustrates a massive deviation from these principles. Combined with the inability of the current vaccine to prevent catching or spreading it, it's nonsensical.

Anytime you have to be mandated to do something, that most people will survive there is something wrong. Many have had Covid-19 and their immune system is better than the jab. Many worked through the pandemic before the vaccines and now they lose their job what's wrong with our government 😠

When they agreed to work, nothing was said about being fired for refusing vaccinations. Would they have been fired for refusing a tetanus shot? No! So this is no different.. The fact that they are not vaccinated does not make them any more or any less a worker.

Tetanus is not a communicable disease.

Most of these employees worked the entire time during the pandemic, when others were too damn lazy and drew unemployment. I don't have a dog in this argument, but those that do - should get unemployment.

Why are some people in the medical field refusing to get vaccinated? They know that COVID is not the deadly disease it is portrayed. They worked when they were needed. They should be paid if they are laid off. Anyone should if COVID is the excuse.

Not if they choose to deny the science and get their information on the internet trash line.

It is basically, a voluntary resignation. Same rules should apply as does with other resignations.

Their choice. Get a safe, effective and free vaccine to not only protect themselves but protect their family, friends and community…or not. They are so narcissistic that their political belief trumps everyone’s safety. Same with religious exemptions. Nope, they don’t deserve unemployment.

With any job if there are policies you don't agree with & refuse to follow, you are welcome to leave & find a different job!

They chose it, so no, they shouldn't be entitled to unemployment. That is for people who have NO other choice. I have read up on so-called "religious exemptions," and there are very few except for snake handlers and those types of really"out there" religions, People claiming that are faking it.

Choices come with consequences. These people can choose to deny scientific data but they sure shouldn't be paid for doing so when society's welfare is put at risk.

If you don't meet the conditions of employment, you don't have a job. You have a choice. If you lose your job, you lost it for cause.

Obviously, if kids who shouldn't be riding these bikes cannot ride them to school, that represents hours of the day that they won't be on them, being reckless, violating basic rules of the road, and putting lives, including theirs, in danger.

I have a business literally across the street from their office/dump location and still get consistently missed on recycling. I have been missed regularly on garbage as well. The city has the ability to pull their contract if this continues.

I live in Crook County. We went a whole month without recycle pick up. The service is always on FB because of inconsistent service. We went two weeks with no garbage pickup. It's like this all over the city as well as out of city limits! VERY FRUSTRATING when you're paying for a service!

LOL. In Crooked River Ranch - we don't know what 'recycling' is. The garbage company totally did away with it. So - I feel no sympathy for some of you who have 'delays'.
