The largest medical consortium in the United States sent 2,200 doctors on unpaid leave due to refusal to vaccinate

179

American Consortium for Integrated Managed Care, based in Oakland, California, Kaiser Permanente set more than 1 percent of their stuff on unpaid leave because they did not prove vaccine status. Another seven percent of the total number of workers also face unpaid leave or dismissal if they are not vaccinated.

The total number of employees in the United States is 300 thousand people.

“More than 92 percent of our employees have been vaccinated—and the number continues to grow,” Kaiser stated. “We hope none of our employees will choose to leave their jobs rather than be vaccinated, but we won’t know with certainty until then,” the Oakland, California-based company stated. “We will continue to work with this group of employees to allay concerns and educate them about the vaccines, their benefits, and risks.”

In response to such ill-treatment of medical workers, America's Frontline Doctors sued the employer.

Kaiser Permanente obviously did not expect such resistance from their employees. Therefore, in order to finally finish off the management, 24 thousand employees went on strike demanding higher wages and working conditions.
