Virginia Alleyne worked as a waitress at Yankee Stadium for 17 years until she was placed on unpaid leave due to her non-compliance with the New York City COVID-19 vaccination mandate — the same mandate NYC Mayor Eric Adams recently exempted athletes and performers from, leaving behind the rest of the city’s workers with his astounding hypocrisy on full display.
“Being healthy is not just about being physically healthy, but being economically healthy,” Adams said at Citi Field last month where he announced the signing of his exemption order.
This last move by the mayor to allow the wealthy and famous to earn a living while completely ignoring workers like herself was the final injustice for Alleyne, who took action by filing a lawsuit. “For him to allow millionaires to work and to punish the workers who are the lifeblood of this city is just horrendous,” Alleyne explained in the New York Post.
Glenn Beck invited Alleyne to “Glenn TV” to get the full scope of her story, including her lawsuit. She explained to Glenn that she refrained from getting vaccinated because of religious reasons and filed a religious exemption with her employers at Yankee Stadium. Her employers, however, refused to allow her to continue waitressing in the Legends Suite Club, where she held seniority.
“I’ve been working for the Yankees for 17 years, so it is atrocious,” Alleyne told Glenn. “I know Mayor Adams inherited the situation, but the first thing he should have done is repeal the mandates. Let’s get people back to work, let’s get the city back.”
Alleyne described New York City like “the wild wild West,” noting how excruciatingly dangerous the city has grown alongside the increase in the homeless population she fears she’s on the brink of joining herself. Keeping her spirit alive to fight the good fight are her faith and her 15-year-old autistic son.
Alleyne added that she’s doing this for the others like her who have been kicked to the curb by the city. “This is for the nurses, who are on the front line. The police, the firefighters, the stadium workers, the servers, the security guards. … I’m fighting for everyone who was fired unjustly for these draconian mandates.”
