Bank of America Senior Execs Tell Young Staffers to ‘Dress Down’ as Amidst NYC Crime Surge

Although the leftwing media and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are in denial about the increasing wave of crime sprees in liberal cities, a recent message Bank of America executives sent to its staffers proves otherwise.

“Amid a surge in some New York City violent crimes, Wall Street bigwigs continue to encourage younger staffers to come into the office – but to do so with caution” reports The New York Post.

One specific example comes from Bank of America. Senior executives were reportedly so concerned about their employees, they felt compelled to encourage younger employees to “dress down” to attract less attention.

The Bank of America employees make their way to Bryant Park each day, a midtown Manhattan location that is not considered to be in a dangerous part of New York in the slightest; in fact, it is quite the opposite.

The executives “have told their staffers that dressing up, or wearing anything with a Bank of America logo, could make them a target” added the Post. One bank employee told On The Money he has been on high alert after he spotted an individual with a knife near his office.

As recently as November 28, the city had reported a 15 percent increase in felony assaults in only the previous 28 days compared to a year earlier. Murder rates have also increased 42 percent over the past two years.

An executive at another money management firm said they recently began carrying a Taser on his commute to his midtown office. Some companies such as Citibank offer employees private shuttles in order to avoid public transportation, and commuting in the dark; particularly after daylight-saving time ended last month.

Wall Street sources say they are having the same troubles as the midtown area. “Some people I work with have been accosted…I’d say it’s becoming frequent, if not common…there’s probably a dozen incidents that I saw, or have been involved in” said the source.

Democrats Introduce ‘Transgender Bill Of Rights’

Published

on

On Tuesday, House Democrats introduced a “Transgender Bill of Rights” to “protect and codify the rights of transgender and nonbinary people under the law and ensure their access to medical care, shelter, safety, and economic security.”

Led by Democrat Reps. Pramila Jayapal (WA), David Cicilline (RI), Marie Newman (IL), Mark Takano (CA), and Ritchie Torres (NY), HR 1209 proposes “amending the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics in public accommodations and federally funded programs and activities.”

“As we witness Republicans and an extremist Supreme Court attack and roll back the fundamental rights of trans people across our country, and as state legislatures across the country target our trans community with hateful, bigoted, and transphobic attacks, we are standing up and saying enough is enough,” said Jayapal, the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and co-chair of the Transgender Equality Task Force.

“Our Trans Bill of Rights says clearly to the trans community across the country that we see you and we will stand with you to ensure you are protected and given the dignity and respect that every person should have,” Jayapal added.

The bill seeks to increase the ability of children to get permanent and life changing surgeries by “eliminating unnecessary governmental restrictions on the provision of, and access to, gender-affirming medical care and counseling for transgender and nonbinary adults, adolescents, and children.”

The bill will additionally ensure that biological male students are allowed to compete in girls’ sports by amending federal “education laws to ensure that they protect students from discrimination based on sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics, and guarantee students’ right to participate in sports on teams that best align with their gender identity.”

Federal education laws will also be amended to allow students to :use school facilities that best align with their gender identity,” meaning that biological males would be allowed to use girls’ restrooms and locker rooms.

The bill expands beyond “transgender rights” to also ban states from making laws restricting abortion by “codifying the right to abortion.”
