Don’t be alarmed if you don’t hear from Donald Trump for awhile. If Mayor Bloomberg disappears, it’s OK. There will be no stand-up from Jerry Seinfeld for the time being. They haven’t been abducted. They may be TRAPPED in their homes! “Why,” you might ask? Read on…
It looks like there’s going to be a doormen’s strike in New York City. Contract talks with the Doormen’s Union continued Monday with a strike deadline of midnight tonight. The main issues are workers’ pay and health insurance. Now, I thought all the health insurance problems in America mystically disappeared with that new bill. But, I digress.
This strike would involve 30,000 doormen, porters, superintendents, elevator operators, handymen and janitors. THIRTY THOUSAND! One other thing to remember is that equipment repairs and food deliveries wouldn’t happen, because those folks would probably refuse to cross picket lines!
Sooooo, not only will the rich be trapped in their buildings, they’ll starve! We will never forget 4/20/2010. Unless, of course, they resolve the issue and avoid the strike. Which NYC celebrity will YOU miss the most?
