纽约市工人接种疫苗的抗议活动关闭了布鲁克林大桥进入曼哈顿的交通

NYC’S BARCLAY’S CENTER SWARMED BY PROTESTERS SUPPORTING NETSKYRIE IRVING’S REFUSAL TO BE VACCINATED

PIX11 reports all city workers must have their first shot of the coronavirus vaccine by 5 下午. Friday if they want to come to work the morning of Nov. 1.

Monday’s protest follows a protest Sunday night at the Barclay’s Center in support of Kyrie Irving. A crowd of people rallied as the Brooklyn Nets lost to the Charlotte Hornets at their home opener without their point guard. At one point the protest turned violent when some demonstrators tried to break into the arena, clashing with security and police.

Irving has refused to get vaccinated. 结果是, he’s not getting paid. The same could soon be said for thousands of city workers if they don’t get the shot by Friday.

That’s the threat from Mayor Bill de Blasio with vaccination rates lagging behind the general population at several large city agencies including the NYPD and the FDNYP.

It’s time now. If you don’t want to get vaccinated, you’ll be put on unpaid leave. 好, the vast majority of human beings go to work to get paid. 并且, I think for a lot of our first responders, there’s a calling. They believe in the work, they care about the work. Those two factors I think are going to cause the vast majority to get vaccinated,” Mayor de Blasio said.

The mayor did offer a $ 500 incentive for city workers to get vaccinated and even that’s causing controversy, with several unions now demanding back pay for workers who already got vaccinated without a bonus.
