De Blasio, City Hall staff to be furloughed for a week amid budget crunch
This appears to be political theater. A show, to secure money from outside of the city. It’s 5 unpaid days for staff between now and March. This is supposed to save less than $1 million. DeBlasio’s wife has a $2 million staff dedicated just to her. Why not just fire that entourage?
