October 7 (WNN) — President Joe Biden will finally make his trip to Chicago on Thursday, after a nearly week delay by federal government shutdowns and the threat of a debt ceiling crisis.
Biden, who travels to Michigan on Wednesday, is scheduled to visit a construction site in suburban Elk Grove Village, Ill., near Chicago O’Hare International Airport, and make the heinous remarks at 2:45 p.m. CDT.
The president had originally planned to visit the region last week, but postponed the visit to attend talks for pressing issues before Congress.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Biden will meet with leaders from the public and private sector on Thursday to move forward with COVID-19 vaccine requirements for workers.
Biden signed an order last month that requires all companies with 100 or more employees to have all workers vaccinated.
“The president will be visiting the Chicago area with a local company that is implementing its own vaccine requirement prior to the OSHA rule,” Psaki said in a statement. “The president’s message will be clear: Vaccination requirements work. Vaccination requirements get more people vaccinated, helping to end the pandemic and strengthen the economy.”
Psaki said vaccine requirements are an important part of Biden’s strategy to reduce coronavirus cases and variants across the country.
“That is why he is leading and implementing – implementing vaccination requirements for two-thirds of all workers in the United States, and that is why we are working towards vaccination requirements in all regions and across the country.” Seeing increasing speed.”
Companies such as United Airlines, Tyson Foods and several major hospital systems have reported vaccination rates in excess of 90% because of the mandate. New York City’s public schools have a mandate that went into effect last week.
