Washington State: Those Refusing to Take the Vaccine

Pretty good numbers for compliance.

This was in The Seattle Times:

“Of the 63,000 Washington state workers who were subject to Gov. Jay Inslee’s vaccine mandate, 1,887 have left their jobs or have been terminated following Monday’s deadline, according to the Office of Financial Management. Of the state workers still employed, more than 92% are verified as vaccinated.

“Attorney General Bob Ferguson tweeted Monday: ‘Our office remains undefeated in 42 legal challenges to these orders.’”

One high-profile “refuser” was the head football coach for Washington State University (WSU). He was making $3 million a year. Not a bad gig if you can get it.
