Postal Service asks Biden to exempt employees from COVID mandate
The United States Postal Service is seeking a temporary waiver from the Biden administration’s mandate that will require large employers to ensure that workers are either vaccinated against COVID-19 or that they test negative weekly, reports TheBlaze.com.
Out of a fear that droves of postmen would quit or need to face disciplinary action, Deputy Postmaster General Douglas Tulino wrote that the COVID-shot mandate “is likely to result in the loss of many employees — either by employees leaving or being disciplined.”
Michigan Rep. becomes 25th House Democrat to retire
On Tuesday, Democrat Rep. Brenda Lawrence of Michigan announced that she would not seek reelection to the House, joining a growing list of Democrats to retire before the 2022 midterms.
Lawrence, 67, is the 25th House Democrat to announce they’re retiring before the midterm elections this year.
In light of President Joe Biden’s low poll numbers, political analysts expect that a wave of Republicans will gain seats in the 2022 midterm election.
