Also last week, Biden announced that he will direct the Department of Labor to develop a rule that will require companies with more than 100 employees to mandate vaccinations or once-per-week testing for their workers, potentially affecting tens of millions of U.S. private-sector employees and health care workers.The new orders face heavy criticism from opponents, including the Republican National Committee (RNC), who […]
