Leaving California.....for good this time

I've been employed by the LAUSD since 1999, got laid off in 2012, took a risk and cashed out my 403B and put it down on a house in Utah....scraped by (barely) and got called back to my job after 38mos.
Now with all the Covid "plandemic" hoo ha, I have to get tested weekly and wear a mask whenever I'm on district property.
Well, that wasn't enough, now they tell us that, if we're not fully vaccinated by Oct 15, you're out of a job!
So, I'm not getting a vaccine that they don't know enough about (my buddy's step son died after his second shot....he was in his early 20s) and was rushed to FDA approval by an entity headed by "Dr" Fauci's wife!
A lot of guys I work with feel the same as l do but are too young to retire, are getting the jab, just to save their jobs.
Vaccinated or not, you can still contract and spread the virus so, who but myself am I putting at risk?
What about "my body my choice?" or does that only apply to "birthing persons" looking to abort!
So, I'm pulling the plug, retiring and leaving the communist state of California where you can't even walk down the sidewalks amid all the "urban campers".
Hopefully they'll oust the Governor and put someone sensible (Larry Elder) in Sacramento.
Rant off,
Hans

Ditto. Wife and I are moving to North Carolina this Saturday actually. We can't stand CA, plus having a job that allows telework there's nothing keeping us here anymore.

Re: Leaving California.....for good this time

Congratulations.

I hear you on all fronts.

FWIW, The Bride used to work for a drug discovery support company (well acquainted with the process to bring a drug to market) and she is a data analyst. She has hard support for everything you see. And her employer has now mandated the vaccine. She is fired up to say the least. There is no way anyone in this house is getting the shot.

Now, that said, there are some folks for whom it makes sense. We all have different risk profiles. If I were 75 years old it would be another picture entirely. The real crime in this picture is that folks are not supposed to think critically and make an educated decision on their own behalf. That is a low blow, and those who have gone that route have lost all credibility AFAIAC.

Wherever you are in Utah I am sure you are in range of some great wheeling. Enjoy your new freedom.

Yup, yup, and yup. In the same boat here, October 15th. Wish I was old enough to get partial retirement.

Re: Leaving California.....for good this time

Sorry to see you go Hans!

After watching my wife go through as severe case as you can have and not be hospitalized I decided to go ahead and get the vaccine. Did my homework first. Stayed away from the media, and Fauci; focused on scientific journals; reputable preprint and peer reviewed.

Re: Leaving California.....for good this time

My oldest just bought a place in Henry county Tennessee on 40 acres. Apparently Idaho was still a little too liberal for him. There is a three bedroom house that the original owners purchased that used to be a neighbor; they were too close? He keeps telling me that the wife and I had to move back there. As much as I'm looking forward to getting out of this state, it's just a little bit too soon. Still have family obligations that keep me here.

Bought a house in Williams, I "live" there.

Kept my job in CA and "stay" here enough to have the job, but that Oct 15th deadline is coming.

Nope, in town. Have good internet service from century link for $65. Avoid hughesnet, my buddy has it and it sucks.

Same boat as Oatmeal on Oct 15, school job has mandated vaccination proof by that date.

Re: Leaving California.....for good this time

I'm not a lawyer. This is not legal advice. Does your state have a legal precedent to establish non-consent for a medical procedure=automatic exemption for the medical procedure? If so, you should consider seeking legal advice on the possibility of using it as a medical exemption. In most western nations employment law prevents employers demanding disclosure of medical history. You may only need to inform them in writing that you are 'medically exempt'.
