We are coming to NY to see family for Christmas. DH and I talked last night about going to Radio City while we’re there. Then we remembered that our children are not vaccinated, and we wouldn’t be able to go. Oh well.

Our trip to NY will be short, and we are going to spend our money on a vacation to Florida.

So yes, NYC lost our tourist money. Probably many others, too.



Kids 12 and under can attend without being vaccinated or providing a negative test. They just have to wear a mask.



Thanks for the info. Two of my kids are 12 and 15, and do not have the Covid vaccine.



I Always wondered...do they ask for a birth certificate at the door too? To prove they are under 12?
My DD is 11 but will be able to pass for under 12 for awhile.
Are they proofing kids now?




LOL, they don't ask anything...my daughter is 11, but looks like a teenager. We went out last week, to a fancy restaurant in queens... they didn't ask for proof of vaccine for any of us...and the waiter put a wine glass in front of my daughter and poured wine in it while I had my head turned. I said "ummm, she can't drink this!" and he said "oh, she's not of age?" and I said "She's 11, so no, she still has 10 years to go!" He laughed.

Anyone live or work in NYC?

The reality is while these city jobs *may* be short staffed in the short term (and honestly I HIGHLY doubt those city workers will give up their pension and benefits unless they are able to retire) they won't be for long. City jobs pay well and have fantastic perks like free health insurance, pensions, annuity plans that guarantee high rates of return. There WILL be people to fill these jobs.

Yes they'll need to be trained in the case of fire, cop, sanitation but they will be and we'll keep it moving.

People are actually walking away. Things may get better than they are today in the short term but it's going to take a couple of years to recover from this. They were already short staffed before and the newest class in the fire academy (hired before the mandate) has been there less than a week.

Will be interesting to see who not able to retire truly "walks away"

Tell that to NYPD.
Their pay is not up to par with other surrounding police depts. not even close
Their working conditions are horrendous.
They now can be PERSONALLY sued- as in lose their HOUSE- if someone makes an allegation against them.
There isn't' enough money in the world you could pay me or a lot of others to do that job.

Second week in a row with no garbage pick up.



this is being done on purpose by the sanitation workers. From what I understand 40% of NYC sanitation workers are not vaccinated and now not working. The vaccinated workers are standing by their unvaccinated peers by not picking up the slack. If they did, there would be no reason to worry about the unvaccinated workers returning to work- they wouldn't need them. I totally get it.
As a resident of NYC, this is just nuts to me.
I'm vaccinated, but I don't believe in these mandates, especially for people like sanitation workers- makes no sense. My daughter lost teachers in school and the subs are terrible....although I sort of do understand the mandate for teachers- they are trying to protect our kids.
I've been to many restaurants- some are following the rules and checking cards, but some are not.



I have a family member in Sanitation in NYC and you are 100% correct.
It's a slowdown job action.

There are actually underground lists of restaurants who don't check vaccine cards (or don't look too hard if you know what I mean- just enough to make it look like they are checking what you are flashing them )

All of that being said, they will find people willing to work for the pay benefits and pension in no time. It's just a reality

Possibly but they had a real recruitment issue for years- before things got even worse in NYC - they were taking people with felonies on their records which they never did before and paying people with gift cards to take the test.
Now things are worse.
Add a forced vaccine and it's not going to be as easy.

I don't know honestly. As long as they don't require too many college credits they are generally able to find people willing to work. I am not saying that the work conditions are good but I am saying that there are people willing to tolerate it.

This 100% true. They ended qualified immunity in the spring.

NYC ends qualified immunity

You should probably look harder.
DH was NYPD and this is 100% true.
You can have a felony- a certain class and probably within a certain period of time - like X many years ago- and still get on the NYPD
This started about 10 years back when they were having recruitment issues.
Beggars can't be choosers.
But the general public only hears what the media wants them to hear so they can go see their Broadway shows and feel all safe.
Talk to real cops- you'll hear the real truth about what goes on in the NYPD.
Nobody wants that job anymore unless they are desperate or already invested in it and working to get their pension and get the hell out

Re: Anyone live or work in NYC?

The loss of indemnity is 100% true.
Do you know any cops in real life?
You can 100% be PERSONALLY sued
This has been a huge thing since it came out.
Cops are actually purchasing their own insurance polices for this.
But yeah it must be fake news because it doesn't fit the agenda.
Be careful in NYC this Christmas when you go see the tree and all the other toursity crap

I believe those were put on leave without pay and thousands have put in for exemptions. Those waiting to hear back on those exemptions are still working. Don’t forget about those who are on vacation or medical leave. They are not counted in the newly vaccinated numbers since they are not technically working right now. When you see the mayor boasting about how mandates work just know those numbers are skewed. Once the exemptions are sorted through then there will be an accurate number of who will walk away. I am sure that the city is taking their time going through the exemption requests. So the deadline was today but not really. I am sure there are also plenty that will put in for retirement if they have the time.

Yes 6k filed for religious exemptions which buys them more time. DH estimates it will take 2-3 weeks to review but I think longer.

Not as many firemen filed religious exemptions and they sent some home who did.

There are higher than normal numbers going on medical leave. Some are due to severe side effects from the vaccine, some are legit hurt, and some are just mad. At 9:30pm last night there were still people in line at the medical office.

Ones that could be out there helping the public BUT the mandates are harming people.

Doesn't anyone SEE how stupid this all is? They were perfectly fine to work BEFORE the vaccine. We cheered them all on (every night at 7pm for nurses) but now how DARE they not have a vaccine, we need to fire them.

I know a few NYPD and LI police officers who have already retired when this all started to get bad. ALL of them under the age of 50.

My DH was 41 when he retired. And he thanks the good lord every single day that he didn't stay a moment longer. It was getting bad when he left, it is 100 times worse now. His friends who are still on are miserable. Many left for Nassau and Suffolk if they were lucky enough to get on there- that is truly like winning the lottery as a cop.
Many moved to other states to be cops there.
Many went to even lower paying law enforcement like parks department and sheriffs- just to get out of NYPD.
It's a shame really.

Yes.

There is a lot of chaos and disarray and at the end of the day... There will still be Covid, most likely at the same current rates...


Some of these first responders are coming up on their one year vaccine-iversary too, what happens then? Are they then considered unvaccinated? Are we going to be back at square one with this?

It IS a shame and Desantis is offering 5K to move to FL and work there. I am SURE many will go. Why not? Our taxes just went up (ridiculous as my pay didn't go up) and what are we getting for what we pay for?
