Bill will be okay. He’ll be living off that $850 million dollars his wife stole from the ThriveNYC project she was put in charge of.
Think how much money they would save if they made it permanent.
Think of all the desks that won’t have the shoe heels of goof-off employees resting on them while non-workers surf the net or text friends and lovers. Work? Its can wait. And wait.
“Your call is important to us. Please call back when we feel like working. I mean, when the furlough is over.”
Wow, a WHOLE WEEK?
Thats mighty big of Billy Boi
Hell probably be out painting murals.
Boy, we havent heard much about that lately.
They will sue and get back pay.
I doubt if many voters there know that there are 500 Mayoral staffers. Kings need their jokers.
With a mayoral salary of $258,541 per year, de Blasio is expected
to miss out on around $4,972 in a week-long furlough.
He won’t miss that little bit...
They won’t save a dime, full pay while on furlough.
A week long unpaid Vacation as opposed to the other fifty one weeks of paid Vacation.
New York City is in the midst of a massive budget crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The city is facing layoffs of 22,000 city workers, the trash isnt getting picked up, the parks arent being maintained. But Mayor Bill de Blasios wife, Chirlane McCray, maintains a staff of 14 and has a budget of $2 million. McCray is a professional activist, meaning shes a pro at squeezing money out of politicians. She got her soulmate Bill to give her $1.25 billion for a mental health initiative she called ThriveNYC. That was five years ago. So hows that program working?
No one really knows because McCray apparently cant keep track of the money.
New York Post----First lady Chirlane McCrays ThriveNYC unveiled a splashy new website Monday purporting to show the $1.25 billion plan has dramatically improved the landscape of mental health services in New York City over the last five years.
But a closer look at geocoded maps and colorful bar graphs in the Data Dashboard reveals missing metrics for over two-thirds of the programs, no advancements for about half of the initiatives and a major decrease in services badly needed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
And theres only six months worth of data for the nearly five-year-old program. You mean she has to keep track of the money? I guess no one told her. Her staff has doubled in size since 2018, including the addition of a videographer. Fox News: They include the $70,000 videographer McCray brought on in February. The shooter, who is listed as a Department of Health employee in city records, filmed the first lady making ginger snaps on April 2 during the coronavirus lockdown.

Then theres the $130,000 executive program specialist from the Dept. of Social Services and $65,000 associate director of advance to the first lady.
Sources at the Mayor's Office said the mayor's wife also has at least another six staff who are not named
on the official public roster. Her total workforce numbers 14 with a hefty price tag of $2 million.
McRay's pricey team includes $150,000-a-year senior adviser Dabash Negash (pictured) recruited in April
- at the height of the pandemic, just one week after de Blasio announced a hiring freeze to help close a $7.4 billion budget deficit. These two have city money pouring in......faster than they can find places to hide it.
DeBlob put his wife in charge of four (4) govt-funded agencies that have the most potential for looting
(A) <><> mental health reform (she "forgot" where she put $800 million tax dollars)
(B) <><> coronavirus racial equity agency.....
(C) <><> heads the tax-funded Mayors Task Force on Racial Inclusion
(D) <><> Upon taking office, he gave her "The Mayor's Fund for NYC" which receives non-stop tax dollars to
"do-good" for the city (and to finance their political ambitions).
THERE IS NO OVERSIGHT----they can loot and pillage tax dollars at will.
So he gave himself and his gang a 9 day paid vacation.
Make that a week vacation.
When i suggested furlough for employees rather than laying us off, i was told it was illegal because we had unemployment benefits.
