New York COVID-19 vaccine mandates for government workers facing growing union backlash

The Hill media columnist Joe Concha joins ‘Fox Business Tonight’ to discuss the New York mayor’s most recent calls asking employees to get inoculated
Public employee unions in New York are pushing back against newly-announced dictates requiring workers to get vaccinated for COVID-19 or submit to regular testing for the virus.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Democrat, announced Monday that public employees of The Big Apple need to be fully vaccinated by mid-September are they would be required to get tested for the coronavirus on a weekly basis. Officials note that it is not a mandate because employees have a choice, but some employees and unions say the measure goes too far and stamps on workers' rights.
