The Massachusetts Department of Corrections has fired at least 75 personnel, including officers over Governor Bakers vaccine mandate. The department has lost nearly 200 employees in total due to the mandate.
The main issue here is that there is a serious shortage of Correctional Officers as it is, can we really afford to be firing them or driving them to retire or quit?
“The governor has turned his back on the very men and women who worked bravely in these conditions for almost two years,... Even if officers have medical conditions preventing them from receiving a vaccine or have had an adverse reaction to the vaccine or have a sincerely held religious belief, they will be terminated!”Source
This is a horrible way to treat the men and women who serve our communities, wouldn't you agree? Let us know in the comments.
