I need your prayers, or good energy, or just your thoughts frens.
A week ago my boss came to me and explained the state of Victoria's new law* that all authorised workers had to be vaccinated by Oct. 15 to continue to be allowed to work. He was upset about it as I was, but he's decided to get the jab to keep his small business afloat. After thinking it over I have decided not to. I cannot and will not be threatened into undergoing a medical procedure I do not want.
I wracked my mind trying to find a way around it, including finding a doctor who'll fake giving me the shot, but that entirely defeats the purpose of standing up for my values. I will gladly die on this hill.
But I'm terrified, the only work I've ever done is essentially trade work and that's what's being targeted by the mandates here. I have some savings to keep me going but that was to eventually buy a house. My livelihood is being destroyed by a man representing a group of people who would rather see their peers fall into poverty and die rather than have the wrong opinion.
Pray for me, pedes. The next few months to years will be the most difficult of my life.
*it's not law and it's not legal, fuck you Premier Andrews you smarmy cunt.
UPDATE: I still have a job, my boss is going to stick by me until he's absolutely unable to, and even then he'll personally have my back. Read more about it here.
Thank you guys so much for your incredible outreach.
