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.

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.
