What a surprise, they’ve been listening to the teachers union zoom meeting for a year and decided now is the time to speak out. And people think municipal workers are lazy. Shocker.

I know a lot of people who are looking for work. The city should just fire every employee and start hiring replacements.

ALL 80,000 people need to go back to work immediately. The city has made all efforts to get New Yorkers vaccinated & get NYC back in motion. If it was up to city workers they would work remotely indefinitely

I'm a government worker and we've been in the office for 8 months. And we are all still alive. And we haven't had a single case of Covid. Not one. And we take customers. 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔 Sounds like some lazy folks are looking to sit at home all summer. I say fire them. Plenty of people who would GLADLY take their jobs without complaint.

City workers should be thankful that they still have the jobs. Wait until the unemployment benefits expire, watch so many peoples will be hunting for any jobs like 2010 crash. Law enforcement, transit workers, fire dept, sanitations and etc were working through whole pandemic. So stop complaining and go back to work/quit or resign.

With all these free housing and stimulus checks, who would want to go to work? When you can stay home and pretend to work and get paid, who would want to go into the office to actually having to work to get paid? Free everything is human rights!!! Pony up!!

So why exactly wasn’t the return to work incremental, with people going back in batches? Or even staggered schedules.. is it safe to add 80,000 more commuters to the streets of NY , despite the fact that everyone isn’t vaccinated yet🤨
Amono_ 4 ditë më parë
I see the Mayor wants to make sure the MTA doesn’t go under! City workers will be swiping and standing clear of the closing doors tomorrow.. most of these jobs should be remote anyway.. productivity is way higher

Its not smart for over 100,000 to flood one area for work, in a pandemic, the body heat could keep it alive in air, like humidity at a crowded concert or over packed club

No. Have them come back to their offices. If all the other people/ essential workers could and did work through the whole pandemic since last year, then these idiots have it easy now. But here we are and they do not want to come back to their office because they don't want to??? Cut their salary in half and or fire them for refusing to come to work: aka in the office.

Because the mayor knows the transit system is about to collapse! He needs city workers to pay their daily train/bus fare to keep it running.. it’s all about the $$$$, not the peoples well-being..

​@MrDust2011 --- So you want to limit where someone can live in retirement? How would that solve any issues? How much taxes do people on SS pay? Very little if any in most cases.

rookforce1 4 ditë më parë
@Amono_ A study by Standford of 16,000 workers over 9 months found that working from home increase productivity by 13%. This increase in performance was due to more calls per minute attributed to a quieter more convenient working environment and working more minutes per shift because of fewer breaks and sick days. In this same study workers also reported improved work satisfaction, and attrition rates were cut by 50%. You are right. Based on this study.

Ppl don't want to have to travel to work for jobs they can do from home. It's pointless. This pandemic has taught us that much. We don't need to be in actual buildings to still get the job done. This would apply to administrative/desk jobs only tho.
