Brandon Trosclair, a native of Louisiana and an owner of a chain of supermarkets, is credited with having been instrumental in getting the Federal Appeals Court to block President Biden’s vaccine mandate.
Trosclair launched his own lawsuit, on behalf of his own company, BST Holdings LLC, and against the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the government entity which had issued the mandate. The lawsuit alleges that OSHA does not have the legal authority to issue such a mandate, while also mentioning constitutional issues.
According to the Liberty Justice Center’s website, “supermarket employees like Trosclair’s and other essential workers who braved the pandemic and were once hailed as heroes now face losing their jobs if they don’t comply with the government’s demands. And this is despite the fact they are not government employees, but are employed by private businesses.”
“I am faced with an incomprehensible choice imposed upon me by the federal government: force these workers, whose dedication and skills have fueled my business’s success, to take the COVID vaccine – or show them the door,” commented Trosclair on the subject.Brandon Trosclair is a husband, and father of two who’s involved in his community. A second generation supermarket owner who employs several hundred people, Trosclair feels grateful not only to be living the American dream but to also be able to provide his employees opportunities to live out their own versions of the American Dream.
Following the court’s ruling on the vaccine mandate, Trosclair, who employs nearly 500 people across 15 grocery stores in Louisiana and Mississippi said, “This is an incredible first victory for all Americans that the Fifth Circuit so quickly realized that the Biden employer vaccine mandate would cause great harm to businesses like mine. As the legal process continues, I look forward to sharing more of my story. This stay is a great first step by the court.”
