Business group says US vaccine order will cause thousands to be laid off

A major business group has warned the White House that President Joe Biden's vaccine order will force employers to lay off thousands of workers, making the supply-chain crisis much worse.
The National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors, an influential trade group that represents an industry with almost six million workers, is pleading with the administration to delay a December 8 deadline for employees of federal contractors to get vaccinated.
The Biden executive order does not provide an option of being regularly tested.
In response to the business group's caution, the White House reiterated that the first step for employees who do not get vaccinated is a period of education and counselling, not termination.
