If its that important to humanity, why the five employee cutoff? “We could do four, sir, but that might impact economic activity.”

Typical Marxist Democrat. They’re “for the working man” except the guy working to keep his own business.

Why not all companies with at least one person? Require those sole proprietor cheapskates to pay themselves sick time!

de Blasio is so far left, he’s coming around again.

Sit back and watch him hatch schemes designed to destroy what’s left of NYC.

Well, yet another reason for realistic business leaders to depart—before DeBlasio begins to charge an “exit tax”.

a business with 5 employees is not a big booming business....its a small tailor shop or a small deli....

and with that small a number of workers, you can't afford anyone to be sick let alone pay them to stay home and be sick....its just life...

5 sick days and $15 an hour for the small shop.

Sounds like a plan...

NY has produced a TV commercial which entices businesses to move to NY by not having to pay taxes for ten years; something like that. But this policy weakens the incentive of the tax break imo.

No Problem!

All small businesses will become proprietorships, staffed with independent contractors.

The contractors are given a schedule to show up for work, and be paid for the hours that they worked.

No workers comp; no benefits; no sick pay; no vacations; no scheduled advancement; no social security; no tax withholdings.

Socialist Utopia!!

Like in Europe. The world's largest temporary staffing agency, Ranstad, is based in Denmark.

I like this.

This is a great test-tube experiment.

Do progressives (libs ) ideas work or not?

Great news,

Lets see how it compares to cities in Texas.

Yeah, get established and those 10 years fly by then the state starts knocking your brains out with taxes.

“Like in Europe. The world’s largest temporary staffing agency, Ranstad, is based in Denmark.”

The concept is new in Spain; temps were illegal until a couple of years ago. When the government pushed businesses to hire more people, they agreed on the condition that it wouldn’t be the “employment-for-life” jobs that had characterized Western Europe’s workforce for decaded; employers wanted some flexibility, and the government relented.

Bloomberg can only look good in comparison to DeBlasio; he wanted a playground for the wealthy, where they wouldn’t have to see smokers or heavy people...

Here is what NYC can expect from this latest idiocy:

More small businesses will employ people “off the books”, paying them in cash for hours worked - no benefits & no taxes withheld.

Some employers will cut employee wages by 2% to cover the 5 days.

Some businesses will fire that 5th employee.

The result: the NYC economy will decline, welfare rolls will increase, as will property crime.

5 sick days? That would be gone easily during flu season. I get 11 a year and it is just enough. You figure between annual physical, 2 dental exams, and various other medical situations and then bring the kids into it, five is horrible.
