Take Care Of Your Friendly Neighborhood Hospitality Engineer
It is entirely possible that New York City will face a strike from the building staff. There was an article printed in the New York Times' Sunday edition "New Yorkers Brace for Doorman Strike" featuring this excerpt:
"Who will safeguard my apartment as I sleep? Greet my children when they come home from school? Accept deliveries? Clean the hallways? Sort the mail? Operate the elevator? And who, for goodness sake, will let the cleaning lady in?"
As a nation, we are being taxed increasingly, but with little benefit returned to us for doing so. New Yorkers, in particular, are being groomed to make do with less, and in this instance, these hard-working individuals are being threatened with the loss of benefits that are due them for their years of labor. Many new employees are being informed that they will not have sick days and vacation time; others changes involve lack of pensions. This would make for a working environment more suited to short-term employment, rather than being a career. There shouldn't be any changes to the benefits these hard-working individuals are currently receiving, unless the changes are positive.
I would advise any tenants in such buildings to think about supporting their hospitality engineers...after all, they are people with families, hopes and dreams, just like you.
