In addition to previously announced furlough days for the mayor and his staff, the city of New York will now mandate all managerial and underrepresented city employees to furlough for five days, NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio said Wednesday at the city’s daily Covid-19 conference.

Staff will be expected to furlough for five days starting October through March, the mayor’s office said. 

“We’re hurting,” the mayor said when speaking about the city’s budget. 

Over 9,000 employees in total will be furloughed and that will save the city over $21-million dollars, the mayor said.
