Soon all over Europe?
Employees have been told that they will be working a lot of overtime.
The Austrian government hires people to “hunt down vaccinators”, according to a report by the Look.
The burden of enforcing the fines unvaccinated Austrians pay as part of their sentence is placed on their employers, requiring a new army of “inspectors” to ensure that this process goes smoothly.
The city of Linz with its 200,000 inhabitants has a relatively low vaccination rate of 63 percent.
In response to this, “Linz now wants to hire people who are supposed to hunt down vaccinators,” reports the view.
The inspectors’ task will be to check “whether those who do not get vaccinated are actually paying for it”.
The vaccination refusal hunters receive a wage of 2774 euros, which is paid 14 times a year, which corresponds to an annual income of 38,863 euros.
Nice work if you can get it.
“The job includes, among other things, the preparation of penalty notices and the processing of appeals,” says the report, and you have to be “resilient” and willing to work a lot of overtime.
The positions are only open to Austrian citizens, who must all either be vaccinated against COVID or have fully recovered from COVID.
As we have already reported, unvaccinated Austrians could be imprisoned for one year under a new administrative law that forces them to pay for their internment.
Austrians who fail to get vaccinated by February face fines of up to € 7,200 ($ 8,000), and those who refuse to pay face a 12-month jail sentence as well.
