Cops that refuse to get the COVID-19 vaccine can move to Florida for $5,000 and to be “treated better” according to Governor Ron DeSantis.
Other states are threatening to fire and lay off police officers, healthcare workers, and other professionals refusing the vaccine.
Many officers are outright refusing despite it being a condition of their continued employment.
Chicago has seen 21 officers put on leave without pay because they refused to tell whether or not they had the vaccine.
DeSantis announced that anyone who was fired could come work in Florida for the stipend and be treated better. He also told officers to quit their jobs in defiance.
His offer was extended to New York, Minneapolis, and Seattle.
