Nearly 1,900 Washington state employees have either been fired or voluntarily left their jobs over the governor’s vaccine mandates, according to reports.
Gov. Jay Inslee, D-Wash., implemented a vaccine mandate for state employees across Washington which caused nearly three percent to be terminated after they refused to comply by the Oct. 18 deadline.
Another three percent of state workers were offered exemptions or given remote options if they were still not vaccinated by Monday, according to The Seattle Times.
In a statement made by the Office of Financial Management, the department said that overall 92 percent of the employees were in compliance with the mandate. A total of 89 percent or 56,590 Washington State employees have been vaccinated.
Jason Rantz, a talk radio host, posted photos of 74 hats placed on the state Capitol steps in honor of the state troops who were fired over the vaccine mandate.
A video posted by Disclose.tv on Twitter shows dozens of Seattle firefighters and policemen turning in their boots at city hall.
Some are opting to take legal action against the unconstitutional mandate enforced by the liberal state’s progressive governor.
Former Washington State football coach Nick Rolovich announced Wednesday that he is suing Washington state over his illegal termination for refusing to get the jab.
The below statement is from Rolovich’s attorney, stating that the university was using “deceitfulness” about the Coach’s request for accommodations and that he had been “derided, demonized, and ultimately fired from his job, merely for being devout in his Catholic faith.”
Radical Democrat Gov. Inslee’s mandates are in compliance with the Biden administration’s executive orders mandating the vaccine for federal workers and announcing vaccine guidance for private businesses.
