“I will never forget the people who stood by me.”: A conversation with an Emmy-award-winning hairstylist for the television and film industry who was barred from work by both NYC and industry mandates
This was so interesting and i learned so much from this interview. Some people really went through hard times. Im glad stanley was so strong and made it through !! He is an inspiration because he stayed busy and was positive through it all
Impressive podcast! Just to clarify, I am vaccinated. I firmly believe that no one should be obligated to accept anything into their body against their will in an effort to maintain their employment. whether it's medication for an illness or a vaccine. It's unreasonable to force people to choose between providing for their families and having to take something they perceive as harmful. I saw the scarlet letter these individuals had to wear on set warning others that they were the “unvaccinated” it led to judgement and criticism and an overall sense of hostility toward the people in the industry. I only wish they had legal recourse. Especially those who had legitimate medical exemptions who were denied. I would be interested in hearing from attorneys who are helping individuals litigate these cases.
Thank you both for such an inspiring interview!
