MaineGeneral Health has reached out to previously fired employees asking if they’d consider returning. The workers were fired for refusing to take the experimental mRNA shots which were called COVID-19 vaccines.

According to reports, some workers were even given misconduct charges for not complying with the shot mandate. Many were denied unemployment benefits and zero religious exemptions were honored.

A text message sent to former nurse Terry Poland read:

“As you know, nearly 2 years ago MaineGeneral had to comply with a state mandate for COVID-19 vaccination. We lost a number of great employees as a result, including you. On 8/3/23, the State eliminated the mandate for COVID-19 vaccinations for health care workers. Based on this change, MaineGeneral has eliminated the COVID-19 vaccination as an employment condition. You were once a proud member of the MaineGeneral team. Would you consider rejoining us?”

Poland told local media she was “livid” at the message.

“Like, how dare you force me out of a career that I’ve dedicated my whole life to, taken away my livelihood, my ability to earn a good income, and now you think I’m gonna come grovel back to you?” she said. “I don’t hardly think so. And that’s the attitude of most everybody that I’ve been in contact with since yesterday.”

About 15 former employees received similar messages, according to the report.
