US Supreme Court blocks federal Covid-19 vaccine mandate for large employers


In a blow to the Biden administration, the US Supreme Court has blocked its federal Covid-19 vaccine mandate for large businesses. The conservative-majority court ruled that the plan to require vaccines or weekly tests for employees at businesses with at least 100 staff was a "significant encroachment" on the lives and health of many Americans. FRANCE 24's Cole Stangler takes a closer look at existing requirements in the private sector and how businesses are reacting to the Supreme Court's decision.

  • The GOP Has Far More Important Things To Do Than Help Tens Of Millions Of Americans

    President Donald Trump has changed his thinking, and now says he wants a big stimulus bill passed before the general election on November 3rd. Fed Chair Jay Powell also wants to see one passed and has warned that without one, the US economy's recovery will surely falter. But the Republican-led Senate hasn't passed a new coronavirus relief bill since April 21st, and shows little signs of doing so before the election. According to Business Insider, the GOP is far more concerned with getting the Supreme Court tilted to the right by having Amy Coney Barrett confirmed. For more than five months, Congress has held up a comprehensive stimulus package for tens of millions of Americans and left them in limbo. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wants a so-called 'skinny' bill, while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is holding out for far more for the American worker.

The pace of job growth is slowing, and Tuesday, Fed Chair Jerome Powell reiterated his call for more economic aid from the US government to American workers. Economists warn another stimulus package is necessary to ward off the threat of a double-dip recession. Without it, Powell said on Tuesday, the economic recovery will be painfully slow. Nevertheless, US President Donald Trump on Tuesday ordered an end to all Congressional stimulus talks. That is, until after he is reelected in November.
