DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Some political science specialists consider President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate announcement Thursday was an enormous bypass of the traditional course of it takes to cross laws.
Biden may have OSHA make a rule requiring staff of corporations to be examined. Corporations must pay for the testing, however they’ll cross the associated fee on to staff.
