Lifting mandates for the elite: New York City Mayor Eric Adams lifted the shot requirement for athletes and performers because he doesn't want them at a competitive disadvantage.
Not for city workers: With the news, Mayor Adams stated that they are not rehiring the 1,400 city workers fired earlier this year.
The double standard: Workers remain suspended without pay while millionaires get a pass. Presidents of the FDNY and NYPD unions joined in the criticism.
“If the mandate isn’t necessary for famous people, then it’s not necessary for the cops who are protecting our city in the middle of a crime crisis,” The New York City’s Police Benevolent Association said.
