Questioning the pro-vax narrative could get you the sack

Sharing vaccine ‘misinformation’ in the workplace could amount to misconduct, according to the New Zealand government’s Employment NZ website.

In a section headed ‘Don’t share vaccine misinformation in the workplace’, the website states: “Sharing vaccine misinformation could, in some circumstances and in some workplaces, potentially amount to misconduct in the workplace.”

If we ignore the shoulda, coulda, woulda weazle-words in the statement above, the threat is clear. Tell colleagues about vaccines side-effects such as tinnitus, heart attacks, and neurological disorders and your boss could give you a warning or sack you.

Since when did sharing ideas, thoughts, opinions and concerns become a matter for Employment NZ?

Meanwhile, as the country switched into the Red Zone (11.59pm 23 Jan) amid the ongoing case-demic of the milder Omicron strain, finance minister Grant Robertson put a question mark over the government’s absence payment for those without a vaccine passport.

Speaking after Ardern’s ‘red setting’ announcement on Sunday 23 January Robertson said his personal view is that if people did not have a vaccine passport then he would look to see if that was appropriate that they had government support.

Is Robertson hinting that while official vaccination figures are above 90%, uptake of the vaccine pass is lower?

Also, during the conference Robertson avoided answering a question about compulsory booster shots, referring reporters to Ardern – who had left the building (let’s see what happens at Wednesday’s announcement).

Let’s also remember that last week The Buzz revealed that Robertson has borrowed and spent an eye-watering $64 Billion on covid so far – perhaps he needs to create excuses to reduce state spending…And withdrawing help from those without a vaccine passport is the first step (we shall see).

Meanwhile, Ardern and her supporters continue to say getting the covid vaccine is a free choice, and it is. So long as your employer doesn’t require it (just because they think it is a good idea) and you do not work in any of the following jobs – look at that list carefully, it does not include MPs or civil servants such as those working in the Beehive:

  • Border and managed isolation and quarantine facilities
  • Health and disability sector
  • Education sector
  • Work in prisons
  • Food and drink services (excluding businesses operating solely as takeaways), events, close proximity services and indoor exercise facilities like gyms
  • Work at tertiary education premises (only at the Red level of the COVID-19 Protection Framework)
  • New Zealand Police (sworn members, recruits and authorised officers)
  • New Zealand Defence Force (Armed Forces and civilian staff)
