Untold thousands of teachers, health care workers, first responders, airline workers and others have already resigned or been fired as a result vaccine mandates.
Others are resisting in a public way.
According to the New York Post, Chicago's police union has instructed members not to comply with mandates to fill out information on their vaccine status as part of a mandate or be put on unpaid leave.
According to the New York Post:
Chicago has the nation’s second-largest police department, consisting of about 13,000 cops, many of whom would not comply with the mandate, Catanzara [police union leader] threatened in an online video.
“It’s safe to say that the city of Chicago will have a police force at 50% or less for this weekend coming up,” the labor leader said.
Catanzara instructed his members to file for exemptions to receiving the vaccine, but not inform the city, in the clip.
Separately, hundreds of Boeing held signs and protested outside a factory in Washington state saying they will not comply.

Advocates on both sides disagree on how common the side effects are.
