GOP lawmakers propose allowing workers who quit jobs over vaccine mandates to collect unemployment

WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- Four Republican lawmakers want to change Wisconsin's unemployment rules.

Right now, if you quit your job, state law says you're not eligible for unemployment benefits.

The GOP proposal would create an exemption if the workers leave in a dispute over Covid vaccine mandates. 

A statement from the Republicans says a decision on vaccines should be made by "individuals, not government bureaucrats or employers."
