Walt Disney Company has just announced that they will require all their employees to get vaccinated.  This will be for all salaried, non-union employees.  In a statement, the brand said, “At The Walt Disney Company, the safety and well-being of our employees during the pandemic has been and continues to be a top priority. Toward that end, and based on the latest recommendations of scientists, health officials, and our own medical professionals that the COVID-19 vaccine provides the best protection against severe infection, we are requiring that all salaried and non-union hourly employees in the U.S. working at any of our sites be fully vaccinated.” They added that they are talking with union reps to figure out the best decision for their union workers.  Cast members will have 60 days to comply with this new company rule.  Do you think this is a good or bad idea?
