How Many People in NYC Are At Risk of Losing Their Job Over the Mayor’s Vaccine Mandate?

I crunch the numbers several ways and conclude between 150,000 and 450,000 people will lose their job over Mayor Bill de Blasio’s vaccination requirement for all NYC workers.

Over the Top Tweet

Here’s a Tweet that caught my eye as a wild exaggeration.  

According to Joe Borelli, NYC Council Minority Leader, 45% of blacks, 40% of whites, and 30% of Hispanics will be ineligible and legally barred from working in New York City in 20 days.

Borelli is talking about Mayor Bill de Blasio ‘first in the nation’ vaccination mandate for all workers in New York City starting December 27.
