New Yorkers Rage After Bill De Blasio Brings Them Back to Work

Some even protested the idea.

Published

We are entering the final throes of this coronavirus pandemic, undoubtedly, and there will soon be some tough decisions looming for much of America’s workforce.

We are already beginning to see some of the sign of trouble in certain sectors of our economy – namely in the gig and service industries, where workers are being paid more by the government to not work than they would at a part-time, minimum wage job.  This means that many restaurants, (both fast food and otherwise), are remaining closed on account of a lack of workers.

In New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio is now dealing with reticence from his own work force as well, but for a different reason.

As things are slowly re-opening here in New York City, 80,000 city employees are expected to return to the office on Monday. But not everyone is happy to go back.

“It is disgusting how the mayor and city agencies have been treating city workers and using us as a pawn to bring back New York City,” a city employee, who didn’t want to give her name, said.

De Blasio wasn’t buying it, however.

“Our health care leaders are clear — this is the right time for folks to come back,” the mayor said.

“180,000 city employees have been vaccinated — very important to know that 80% of the workforce is right now at their jobs and has been through the height of the pandemic,” de Blasio said. “We’ve got to do the work to bring the city back.”

The argument spawned a protest by an organization called City Workers for Justice, who are asking the Mayor to push back this arbitrary date in order for employees to spend time arranging for child care and other services that were rendered unnecessary during the pandemic.

PUTIN POKES THE BEAR: Russian Troops Move Toward Ukraine as World Warns

There may be no peaceful end to this situation.

Published

While it has long been understood that Vladimir Putin is a figure representing chaos on the world’s stage, (whether covertly or proudly), the sort of trouble that he’s stirring up this week won’t likely have a peaceful end.

Putin appears hellbent on finding a way and a reason to take Ukraine back under Russian control.  The tiny nation, rich in natural gas and other resources, is far too minuscule to put up a fight, and so it will be up to the rest of the world to deter the Kremlin.

And despite a number of unmistakable warnings, Putin appears unfazed.

Russia is a sending an unspecified number of troops from the country’s far east to Belarus for major war games, officials said Tuesday, a deployment that will further beef up Russian military presence near Ukraine amid Western fears of a planned invasion.

Amid the soaring tensions, the White House warned that Russia could attack its neighbor at “any point,” while the U.K. delivered a batch of anti-tank weapons to Ukraine.

Russia’s Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin said the joint drills with Belarus would involve practicing a joint response to external threats.

Ukrainian officials have warned that Russia could launch an attack on Ukraine from several directions, including from its ally Belarus.

As for any attempts to stop the Russian invasion?  They were squashed when a well-known Putin mouthpiece announced on television that any push to keep Putin from getting what he wants could end in the opposition being turned into “radioactive dust”.
