With 46% of construction workers claiming they will not get vaccinated for Covid-19, President Joe Biden's Sept. 9 executive order requiring vaccines for all federal contractors and for companies with more than 100 employees has become a concern for the Associated General Contractors and other industry groups.
“We expect to lose 40% of our workforce that will just quit in lieu of a vaccine mandate," says Ken Naquin, CEO of the Louisiana Associated General Contractors.
AGC has written letters to the administration expressing their concerns and local contractors fear they will lose more than 40% of their workforce to companies with fewer than 100 employees.
Engineering News-Record would like to hear straight from the contractors and employees about how they plan to handle such a mandate, and what they, personally, will do if required to get a vaccine.
