After a confusing rollout of Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate on businesses with over 100 employees, the White House has finally said the mandate could be finalized this week.

Governor Tony Evers may have gotten away with staying silent on the mandate when it was first announced, but once it’s finalized, he will have no choice. Small businesses and employees need guidance from their governor.

“With Biden’s vaccine mandate potentially being finalized this week, Wisconsin small business owners and employees will be looking to their governor for guidance on how this will affect their livelihoods,” said RGA Spokesperson Maddie Anderson. “This new mandate will put business owners in an impossible situation just as they are beginning to rebuild after Governor Evers’ overburdensome COVID restrictions shut them down last year. Small business owners and workers across the state await Evers’ response: does he support this measure that will spurn job loss and again devastate the economy? Or will he finally find the political courage to do what’s best for Wisconsin?”
