FAST FIVE: Wall Street Firms Tell Employees To "Dress Down" As Violent Crime Rages
The city saw its most significant year-over-year increase in shootings and homicides in more than half a century between 2019 and 2020.
According to Kastle Systems today, whose electronic access systems secure office buildings in the metro area, only 28% of NYC employees are back in the office compared with 35% last month.
The decline is due to the spread of the new COVID-19 variant. Rising violent crime in the metro area could be the golden opportunity for some employees who've returned to the office but want to return to remote working status.
Their excuse is that commuting to work is a life-or-death situation. It's not just Wall Street bankers frightened about being targeted.
For bankers who want to dress down, try incorporating the 'homeless' clothing line sold by elite clothing brands (Gucci makes $900 pair of sneakers that look like someone pulled them out of a garbage can). Tyler Durden Sat, 12/04/2021 – 17:00.
