Ikea Says It Will Cut Sick Pay For The Unvaccinated

Furniture retailer Ikea has announced that it intends to cut sick pay for any staff who remain unvaccinated and need to self isolate if they test positive or come into contact with someone who tests positive for COVID.

The Daily Mail reports that the Swedish company, which employs some 10,000 people in the UK alone intends to slash sick pay to the legal minimum of just £93.35 per week for anyone who is unvaccinated.

That would mean a cut of more than a three quarters of the company’s usual wages for workers.

“Unvaccinated co-workers without mitigating circumstances who have been identified as close contacts of a positive case will be paid statutory sick pay,” an Ikea spokesperson told reporters.

“We appreciate that this is an emotive topic and all circumstances will be considered on a case by case basis, therefore anyone in doubt or concerned about their situation is encouraged to speak to their manager,” the spokesperson added.

The company announced that the policy will only apply to unvaccinated workers with “high levels of absence.”

The company claims that the move is prompted by recent staff shortages owing to many having to isolate.

“Following the vaccine rollout and changes in the government’s isolation requirements, our approach to COVID-related absences evolved from September 20, 2021—an approach developed with our social partners and national co-worker committee,” the company further declared.

Ikea also recently offered workers paid leave to go and get vaccinated.

As we noted yesterday, oncology professor Angus Dalgleish of St George’s Hospital, University of London has warned that British people have become obsessed with taking lateral flow COVID tests and that “it is tantamount to national self-harm,” because it is causing millions to miss work and isolate even though they have no symptoms.

“Hospitals, transport networks, our postal and rubbish collection services and hundreds of thousands of British businesses are now being crippled because of a mania over checking people for an infection that they may have no symptoms for,” Dalgleish urges.

Noting that the Omicron variant is very mild, but very ‘rampant’ with isolation doing little to combat its spread, the professor further describes self imposed lockdowns as “insanity”.

    Investigation Launched After ‘Mystery’ Surge in Deaths of Newborn Babies

    Health authorities say it’s not due to COVID infections.

    Health authorities in Scotland have launched an investigation after a mystery surge in deaths of newborn babies, the second time the phenomenon has been recorded in the space of six months.

    A report by the Herald newspaper highlights the “very unusual” spike in deaths of babies, with the alarm being raised after 18 infants died within four weeks of birth in March.

    That same control limit was also breached in September last year, when 21 neonatal deaths were reported, the first time this had occurred since records began.

    “The neonatal mortality rate was 5.1 per 1,000 live births in September and 4.6 per 1,000 in March, against an average of 1.49 per 1000 in 2019,” reports the newspaper.

    Public Health Scotland (PHS) said the deaths could not have been down to chance, while the cause behind the previous spike in September also “remained a mystery.”

    The report notes that vaccination uptake has increased in expectant mothers and that COVID infections during pregnancy are associated with a higher chance of premature birth, but found no “direct link” between COVID surges and the deaths.

    PHS Scotland says COVID infections “did not appear to have played a role” in the September spate of deaths.

    Edinburgh University’s Dr. Sarah Stock said, “The numbers are really troubling,” but admitted she didn’t know the cause of the deaths.

    Photos, Maskless Fauci Hangs Out With Leftist Media Puppets At Crowded Dinner Party

    The servants were masked

    Anthony Fauci declared that he would not be attending last night’s White House Correspondent’s Dinner because COVID, but instead he went to a crowded pre-party to take maskless selfies with Don Lemon.

    Sean Spicer pointed out the rampant hypocrisy:

    How many times have Lemon and Fauci sat in a TV studio condemning everyone else for being reckless when it comes to social distancing and masks?

    Of course, the hired help were all wearing masks:

    Elsewhere during the event, some reporters complained that there were too many people breathing close to each other, but still took maskless selfies anyway:

    Video: Fauci Decrees That CDC Should Be Above Authority Of Courts

    “Fauci is saying that unelected CDC bureaucrats should be able to impose their will on the country without question or pushback”

    Anthony Fauci emerged from under his bridge Thursday in an appearance no one saw on the hilariously soon to be trashed CNN+ to declare that the CDC and scientific ‘experts’ like himself should be above the jusrisdiction of courts.

    Fauci suggested that a federal judge who struck down the mask mandate as “unlawful,” should not have the authority to do so.

    On Monday, U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle ruled that the mask mandate “exceeded the CDC’s statutory authority, improperly invoked the good cause exception to notice and comment rulemaking, and failed to adequately explain its decisions.”

    Fauci declared that he “was both surprised and disappointed,” adding that “those types of things really are the purview of the CDC. This is a public health issue.”

    “For a court to come in and interfere in that, is really unfortunate. It’s unfortunate because it’s against public health principles,” Fauci claimed. 

    “If you look at the rationale for that, it really is not particularly firm, and we are concerned about that, about courts getting involved in things that are unequivocally a public health decision,” Fauci asserted, decreeing that “This is a CDC issue, should not have been a court issue.”

    He also claimed it would have been “perfectly logical” for the CDC to continue to extend the mask mandate indefinitely.

    Watch:

    And that again highlights why unelected bureaucrats like Fauci shouldn’t be elevated to positions of authority.
