Governor Kathy Hochul plans to increase state spending to $1.4 billion to support New Yorkers in childcare subsidies. This includes setting up day care centers in universities and additional support for working parents. Despite the actions gearing to support struggling parents, the Democratic Legislature felt that this was still not enough to support the entire New York State in childcare.
Is it good New York is doing this or is this too extreme? 1,430 government workers got fired by Mayor Eric Adams for not getting their COVID vaccinations. The number of those who are infected by COVID-19 have significantly decreased as people are showing proof of vaccinations in New York City. Mayor Adams stated, “City workers served on the frontlines during the pandemic, and by getting vaccinated, they are, once again, showing how they are willing to do the right thing to protect themselves and all New Yorkers.”
