Airline Industry Issues Dire Warning Against Vaxx Mandates:

There have been widespread rumors this week that the thousands of flights canceled this past weekend by Southwest Airlines have been the result of massive amounts of people calling in sick to protest COVID-19 vaccine mandates for the airline industry.

Neither management nor airline employees would admit to a protest movement like this, as it is illegal and considered a matter of "national safety."

Anyone who was around 40 years ago will remember when President Ronald Reagan fired 11,345 striking air traffic controllers who had ignored a court order to return to work.  Reagan considered the strike a "peril to national safety" and ordered air traffic controllers back to work under the terms of the Taft–Hartley Act.

When the vast majority of them refused, Reagan banned them from federal service for life.
