A job board website has been created to assist Canadians with finding jobs that do not require them to disclose their COVID-19 vaccine status.
Jabless Jobs is committed to connecting non-discriminatory employers with like-minded job seekers and aims to give people hope by empowering them to obtain financial security regardless of their personal health choices.
Some of the job postings that are open are a customer care representative at SOTA Instruments, a farmhand at Strawman Farms and a granulator operator at Empire Metals.
COVID-19 vaccine mandates have led to thousands of Canadian workers being fired or put on unpaid leave for refusing to take the vaccine, squeezing a tight labour market and raising prospects for lawsuits.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau promised vaccine mandates as a central part of his re-election campaign in September, setting a precedent that has spread from the public to the private sector.
The mandate for federal government workers is one of the world’s strictest, and it has been extended to federally regulated sectors, which include airports and rail travel.
In a recent poll, it was revealed that a majority of Canadians say employees who refuse to be vaccinated against COVID-19 should be fired.
The poll, conducted by Angus Reid, showed about 70% of respondents supported firing on-board airline employees, school teachers, police officers, paramedics, firefighters and health care workers if they are unvaccinated.
There were 64% of respondents that said unvaccinated restaurant employees should be dismissed. And 55% of them had a similar opinion for construction workers and 53% for small businesses.
