Why did Biden make an exception in the mandate for businesses employing less than 100 people?
This is a divide and conquer tactic. There will be fewer people who are affected, and the overall resistance will be less vigorous than if every business, large or small, was under the mandate.
Further, some of these large businesses will resist, and some workers will quit, but many on the margin will not. So, millions will give up and be vaccinated to keep their jobs. Then, once the unvaxxed are fewer in number, and their resistance to that extent weaker, the mandate will be extended to all businesses, including those with less than 100 employees.
The time to fight back is now, because it’s only going to get worse.
