New York City mandates businesses to offer flexible schedules for staff

If it weren’t for Wall Street, would New York City still be around? Considering the inane policies emanating from the likes of Bill De Blasio and other City Council members, you would need to wonder if the City That Never Sleeps would decay into its own leftist filth.

The city will now mandate NYC businesses to offer flexible schedules to their employees.

According to the New York Daily News, the City Council approved legislation that requires employers to offer two temporary schedule revisions every year to workers who need to take time off to take care of personal matters. Businesses can reject any other flex arrangements outside of those two times, but they will be prohibited from “retaliating against employees who request scheduling changes.”

Democratic Councilwoman Debi Rose from Staten Island said in a statement:

“Unfortunately, emergencies happen to all people in all walks of life. No one should lose their livelihood for asking for an unpaid day to tend to an emergency.”

It is true that many companies, large and small, are beginning to offer flex schedules for staff members to adapt to the current conditions. However, presenting mandates will not succeed, and it will only lead to more businesses taking on part-time staff.

New York City is one of the most historic cities in the entire world. It’s too bad that leftists are destroying it.
