The powerful titans of the worlds of business and commerce are having some serious conversations with the White House about the timing of COVID-19 mandates. The National Retail Federation, U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the American Truckers Associations are among those who prefer the mandates be enforced after the upcoming holiday shopping season. Realtors, dentists and staffing companies are also speaking out.
They are concerned there could be a “mass exodus” of vital employees should President Biden’s mandate go into effect too early according to an in-depth CNBC analysis — and many would like to see a 90-day window to deal with this challenge.
“This is a difficult policy to implement. It would be even more difficult during the holiday season,” Evan Armstrong, a lobbyist at the Retail Industry Leaders Association, told the network.

“The reason for such a plea is obvious. Companies simply want to stop the chaotic disruptions these federal mandates are having on their supply chain and workforce. When companies are spending money defending lawsuits, negotiating with employees, or just trying to fill empty positions, they’re not making money. If they’re not making money, they could go broke,” wrote Nate Ashworth, co-founder of Election Central.com, a political news site.
