Probably one of the least talked about professions regarding the effects of taking the covid vaccine, are airline pilots. Pilots across the United States are fearful that being coerced into taking the experimental job could put themselves and their passengers in grave danger.
Co-founder of U.S Freedom Flyers and airline pilot Josh Yoder, is demanding an end to pilot mandates and other airline workers and during an interview with Ann Vandersteel, host of “Steel Truth,” Yoder talked about what he has witnessed in the industry since the vaccines have been rolled out.
Yoder referenced one pilot for American Airlines, who was ultimately forced to get the jab to keep his job, but during a flight to Dallas, Texas, his heart suddenly stopped only six minutes after landing the plane. Since then, his cardiac health has declined significantly, and he blames the jab.
“This could have been any one of us, any single person who was coerced into getting a shot that they didn’t want,” said Yoder. After he witnessed Snow’s testimony, Yoder said he was angry and really upset.
“I’m upset not just with the FAA [Federal Aviation Administration], not just with the airlines, but [with] all the people who aren’t standing up for truth and freedom,” he said.
Many pilots and other airline workers have been pushed out of their jobs over their refusal to get vaccinated.
What happened to Snow may seem extreme and indeed it is, but it still happened, and the fact remains, that if a situation like this arose during a flight, at thousands of feet in the air, the results could be disastrous.
Shery Walker, a pilot for United Airlines, refused to take the experimental shot. Walker was forced to go on unpaid leave and was unable to access her 401(k) benefits because she had refused the shot.
More than 2,000 United Airlines employees, along with Walker, are involved in a lawsuit against the company for “discriminating and retaliating against the unvaccinated and forcing them on unpaid leave.”
So far, the courts have ruled in Walker’s favor, but she stated that the fight is not over, as there are still many airline workers who need to get back to work after being dropped because of the vaccine mandate.
“What you hear in the news about our case being over and everyone living happily ever after is a lie,” she said during a “Defeat the Mandates” rally in Downtown Los Angeles earlier this month. “The truth is our case moves forward.”
Walker is sure that herself and the other 2,000 United Airlines employees have now set a precedent for other airline employees to step forward.
“Don’t think for a minute that it’s just United,” she said during the rally. “It’s happening at all the major carriers.” She called on the FAA to remember that it has a duty to protect the nation’s airspace.
“The vaccine injured may be last year’s forgotten, but they are becoming this year’s heroes. And this war is far from over.”
