Mayor de Blasio today announced a new Pay Equity Cabinet to address race and gender-based pay disparities in New York City. An Executive Order will make the Cabinet a permanent part of City government to ensure that pay equity is a mayoral priority into the future.

“Pay equity is critical to the safety and overall wellbeing of the most marginalized and vulnerable workers in our city,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “It can make the difference between having one job or two, or between stable housing or none. This Administration has taken bold steps to combat the forces of inequality that hold people back, and this cabinet builds upon the progress we have made to close the pay gap and ensure every New Yorker is treated with the respect they deserve.”

“Immigrants and people of color, essential workers, who carried us through the bleakest days of the pandemic, are at the forefront of the fight for equal pay,” said First Lady Chirlane McCray. “New York City continues to pave the way with Paid Safe and Sick Leave Law and other workplace protections, and the Pay Equity Cabinet is a bold step toward closing the race and gender pay gap once and for all.”

Editorial

You should know that there was a time when becoming a Citizen of the United States and becoming an American was part of the American Dream.

Immigrants dreamed and looked forward to obtaining that beautiful blue passport that when presented identified them as a full-fledged American, and they felt that they had acquired part of that American Dream. Acquiring that American Passport gave those who possessed it prestige, liberty and the protections that came with being a citizen of the United States people of other nations could only wish for.

You should know that becoming an American Citizen came with pride and inalienable rights, to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This came with the opportunities and the promise that anyone can prosper and acquire the happiness they seek with a good education and hard work. As American Citizens we are afforded the right to elect our leaders and representatives on the city, state, and federal levels. The beauty of America is that when you become an American Citizen all citizens become one people, the American People.  

It is important for you to know that it is painful and disheartening to hear when New York City Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez said that if American Citizens, do not like granting the undocumented immigrants the right to vote then “pack your bags and move to another city or to another country.” Wow! What nerve and audacity to say this to American Citizens who have fought for this country and have abide by our country’s laws and New York State Constitution.

Could you Imagine what we have come to! while some have waited in line, sacrificed everything, their lives, their families, their positions to obtain American Citizenship and others such as Puerto Ricans who shed their blood and sacrificed to obtained American Citizenship, Ydanis Rodriguez now tells us, that if we do not agree with him in violating the Constitution, which he swore to uphold, and allow non-citizens or the undocumented who entered this country without authorization, or documents, that we should leave our homes, City, State or even our Nation.

Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez, who happens to be a Dominican, knows full…

Mayor Bill de Blasio today announced the City’s Taxi Medallion Relief Program (MRP) has now seen 144 loan restructure approvals, representing $18.7 million in debt forgiveness. Forty-two of those deals were restructured this week alone.

More than 1,000 medallion owners have already completed appointments with the Taxi and Limousine Commission’s (TLC) Owner/Driver Resource Center, and will progress through the restructuring process in the coming weeks and months.

“The Medallion Relief Program is delivering real debt forgiveness to drivers who deserve economic justice, and more unfavorable loans are being renegotiated every day,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “There’s more work to do, and the City is ready to continue supporting the industry that has given New Yorkers so much.”

“The Taxi Medallion Owner Relief Program is delivering positive outcomes for Medallion Owner/Drivers facing financial hardships. We urge any individual Medallion Owner in need to please reach out to the Owner/Driver Resource Center for assistance and for debt relief,” said TLC Commissioner and Chair Aloysee Heredia Jarmoszuk. “144 Owner/Drivers have achieved debt forgiveness and the TLC is providing service to the remaining 950 applicants. We believe in a great future for the Yellow Taxi Sector and are standing by that commitment, providing real debt relief now to Owners in need. We are better and stronger united than divided and we continue to welcome all willing stakeholders to partner with us in the best interest of the Industry.”

“Taxicab medallion owners/drivers have always kept New York City up and running,” said Department of Consumer and Worker Protection Commissioner Peter A. Hatch. “We understand the financial hardships faced by these essential workers so, in partnership with TLC and NYLAG, we are determined to provide all owners/drivers with tools such…
