(Conservative Hub) – California has shut down a second In-N-Out location following the chain’s lack of interest in enforcing the latest of the local government’s over-regulatory mandates. However, the company is not backing down from its decision not to base who In-N-Out will and will not serve on private medical information.
California Wants to Force Restaurants to Be Vaccine Police
Restaurant workers chose their jobs expecting to cook and serve food, but the current California government has other ideas. Under the current rules, the government essentially forces food service employees to demand private medical information from customers in order to be allowed to do their jobs. Throughout Contra Costa County and much of the rest of California, restaurants have been instructed to deny indoor dining service to hungry customers over age 12 that do not prove that they have received the COVID-19 vaccine or been tested within 72 hours.
In-N-Out Wants to Stick to Food Service
California may be trying its hardest to push more than restaurant workers signed up for onto their plates, but In-N-Out isn’t having it. The popular burger chain that got its start in California, became a Southern California staple, and has slowly opened locations in a handful of neighboring states just wants to stick to burgers and fries.
With zero interest in becoming the government’s vaccine police, In-N-Out’s chief legal and business officer Arnie Wensinger explained that, “it is unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe to force our restaurant Associates to segregate Customers into those who may be served and those who may not, whether based on the documentation they carry, or any other reason. We fiercely disagree with any government dictate that forces a private company to discriminate against customers who choose to patronize their business.” If the second location to be shut down follows the lead of the first, it will likely reopen in the near future with no indoor dining option.
Wensinger’s bold stance makes him the latest in a growing list of California higher-ups, including Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, that have not been afraid to defend their employees and customers from the state’s far left government. Should other restaurants in California follow his lead and stand together?
