De Blasio launches agency to combat 'worst landlords'

De Blasio launches agency to combat 'worst landlords'

The mayor announced his goal of making New York City the first in the nation to require employers to provide paid vacation to both full-time and part-time employees. Some Americans want to see the health initiative replicated nationwide.

New York City has once again shown its intent to be a national leader in implementing robust worker protections. It will enforce New York City laws including paid sick leave and will help workers like nannies and drivers get paid when their employers give them trouble. "Today we celebrate our city's relentless commitment to accessible, high-quality health care".

"It's a signal that we need to make more progressive change in New York City", the mayor said.

The idea took inspiration from San Francisco's version of universal health care, Healthy San Francisco, enacted in 2007. "I look forward to working with Council Speaker Corey Johnson and the rest of City Council on this important piece of legislation".

GIC joins German mobile bank N26’s US$300m funding round
To this end, N26 also plans to open two more offices in Europe this year and to double its current headcount which stands at 700. As is the case with its rivals, the startup is targeting a USA launch, promised to go live in the first half of 2019.

On Twitter, the Mayor wrote there would be an expansion to the Metro Plus public option and a new program called NYC Care which will leverage the services of NYC Health +Hospitals system.

"This is the city paying for direct comprehensive care (not just ERs) for people who can't afford it, or can't get comprehensive Medicaid - including 300,000 undocumented New Yorkers", posted a spokesperson for De Blasio on social media.

The announcement follows the creation of other municipal offices dedicated to tenant issues in recent years, including the Tenant Harassment Prevention Task Force and the Department of Buildings' Office of Tenant Advocate, the latter of which was signed into law in 2017, but did not become operational until June of last year, according to a quarterly report. Those land deals often (but not always) come with public subsidies. At this point, there are more questions than answers, but one thing is certain-if successfully enacted, the mayor's paid time off proposal will significantly impact New York City employers. "Well-connected developers should not be getting sweetheart deals on the taxpayers' dime".
