Flow choice field evaluating false when compared with string, or failing



For my flow i am trying to make a switch statement run only if the item is at a specific stage determined by a column.


I am trying to compare this column value with the string that i expect it to be equal.


I am getting an error saying cannot compare object with string but im not sure why the result of my status.value column is not evaluating to true


Overview of my flow:

Error message:

The output, why is the mocStatus Value an object?


 Is this more appropriate for the sub building flows?
