Question:  I am a business owner with over 100 employees.  I support the freedom to choose whether to take the COVID vaccine.  At the same time, I don’t think it helps my community or my employees if we are shut down for violating Biden’s vaccine mandate.  What can I do?  Response:  Federal vaccine mandates are putting freedom-loving business owners in a tough spot.  At RedBalloon, we...
Happy Monday! Today, we want to take you back to high school with a refresher on basic economics. Our economy works so well when supply and demand push against each other naturally - but when they're artificially manipulated, our economy can run into major problems that affect all of us.

What a week!  We posted a job on our own site for a Head of Customer Service last Thursday and have received over 25 amazing applicants.  I think this is a testament to the community of people that we are blessed with on RedBalloon.work.  We have heard the same thing from other businesses who are overwhelmed with the best kind of candidates - the kind that just want to work.  Thank you so much for participating in...
Question:  My employer has given me a deadline to get the vaccine or be terminated.  If they fire me, am I entitled to severance?  What is a standard severance amount? Response:  For most employees, there is no automatic severance.  Severance must be negotiated.  Some executives have the star power to negotiate a severance package up-front, before they even begin work.  The rest of us have to...

Another week in the books, another win in the books.  I was blessed to participate in several media events this week that helped spread the word about the “Freedom to Work” movement.  A couple highlights were our feature with Kennedy on Fox Business , which boosted our message to yet another nationwide audience, and the Speak Truth Without Fear show with Jordan Sarmo on Instagram Live, which expanded our Instagram...
Question:  My employer is requiring me to get vaccinated by next week.  I don’t want to rush into a decision, but if I don’t comply by the deadline I will likely be fired.  How do I buy myself more time? Response:  If you want to postpone a threatened termination, one option is to take time off. In the U.S., we have laws protecting the right of employees to request a leave of absence.  These laws...
This week, we want to highlight a group of true American heroes that deserve recognition - our military and veterans! Our brave service members put their lives on the line to fight for our freedom - but now, they're finding that the very government they protect is turning its back on them, simply because they refuse to fall in line without asking questions. Here at RedBalloon, we applaud and thank the men and women of the military, and our...
I hope you all had a terrific week! This week, we’ve seen our numbers soar like a - red balloon!

Dear RedBalloon Community, This past week has been absolutely remarkable.  The RedBalloon community doubled in size in just a few days!  Because we have so many new members, I wanted to reach out today to welcome you and say thank you.   There's an immense and growing demand for jobs that will fulfill Americans' desire to work without invasion of privacy or infringement of constitutional rights.  I founded...
Question:  I own a small manufacturing business.  The work is repetitive and also requires attention to detail.  Especially with all the COVID relief money floating around, I am having a hard time finding employees with a good work ethic.  Any advice? Response:  Have you considered recruiting through RedBalloon? At first glance, motivating your employees seems more like a business issue than a legal...
