New York City faces key worker shortages as vaccination deadline looms
The Metro says Thousands of New York City workers will be required to show proof they’ve been vaccinated against Covid-19 by 5p.m Friday — or be suspended without pay.
Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the mandate last week, and has recently claimed the city will be prepared for any worker shortage it may see as many police officers, firefighters and sanitation employees remain unvaccinated.
New numbers on Thursday showed a quarter of the affected workforce of approximately 160,000 still hadn’t had their shots, NY1 reported.
