NYC Mayor Expands Vaccine Mandate To All City Workers, Offers $500

The mayor told MSNBC in an interview Wednesday morning that his mandate will now expand to "all city agencies, all city workers. It's time for everyone to get vaccinated," de Blasio said. "Our public employees are going to lead us out of the Covid era."

So, starting Wednesday, the mayor is once again attempting a combo of "the carrot and the stick" by requiring some 160,500 city employees to get the jab, and who will get an extra $500 in their paychecks just for receiving their first shot at a city-run vaccination site.

Although that benefit will "end at 5pm on Friday, Oct. 29, by which point city employees are required to have proof of at least one dose, according to an NYC government website.

And for those who refuse: "Unvaccinated employees will be placed on unpaid leave until they show proof of vaccination to their supervisor."

Already, most city workers had to be vaccinated or tested weekly due to either city or state mandates. Health-care workers in the state and city have all been forced to accept the jab or weekly testing due to a mandate from the state.

Somehow, we suspect this new mandate will go over about as well as the last one.
