JOE Biden said “saloon” while talking about hair salons during his speech today.
The president laughed off the gaffe and corrected himself during his coronavirus update on Wednesday when he announced a paid leave tax credit for Americans who need time off work to get the vaccine.
Meanwhile, he also confirmed the paid leave tax credit will offset the cost for employers with fewer than 500 employees.
This will provide workers will full pay while they’re getting the vaccine or recovering afterwards.
Biden pointed out that shots wiull be available at nearly 40,000 pharmacies “coast to coast.”
“It’s free and it’s increasingly available,” he said, noting that some people can’t afford to take the time off.
“I’m calling on every employer large and small in every state to give employees any time they need…if they’re feeling under the weather.
“No working American” should suffer because they did their “patriotic duty” Biden added, pointing out that 80 percent of seniors had the jab already.
