The Hershey Company turned against their employees and many consumers by “going woke” when the chocolate maker fired employees who refused to get injected with the Chinese coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine.
The Pennsylvania-based company asked employees to sign a nine-page waiver that absolves the company from legal liabilities. The waiver also bars former workers from talking about their experience.
Upon signing the waiver, the employees would be given a “special separation payment” determined by an algorithm. However, many affected Hershey’s employees refused to sign the document and declined the money, which only amounted to two months’ salary for some.
Hershey’s announced a COVID-19 vaccine mandate in August 2021 that went into effect two months later in October. The mandate applied to salaried employees, but excluded factory workers and staff members at the Hershey’s Chocolate World stores.
A company spokesperson said that “a small number” of salaried employees were terminated due to noncompliance with the COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
“A small number of individuals who did not get vaccinated were separated from the company,” the spokesperson said. It was not clear how many employees were laid off.
According to employees who were terminated, Hershey’s human resources (HR) department intimidated them during meetings by asking intrusive questions. Some who sought religious exemptions claimed they were feeling “harassed” with the line of questions being thrown their way.
Many such questions were conducted by employees immediate supervisor and a representative from the human resources department.
Those questions included:
🔹Have you ever been vaccinated?
🔹Are your children vaccinated?
🔹How do you protect yourself when you leave your home?
🔹How often do you go to church?
🔹Do you take Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Tums or Midol? If so, how can you say that you’re truly a religious person because a lot of those medicines also have the same ingredients as the vaccine?
Others were told that Pope Francis is also vaccinated and that he has proclaimed that vaccination is one of the greatest gifts a person can give to their communities
