Paid Vacation Update

By NYC Hospitality Alliance

The NYC Hospitality Alliance is working with the local small business community to make sure our elected officials understand the burdens their policies are inflicting on restaurants, nightlife, et al, across the city.

Regulatory burdens such as bureaucratic red tape, pesky fines, property taxes, and unfunded government mandates are placing extraordinary pressures on small businesses. These regulations are resulting in demoralized small business owners and vacant storefronts sitting where beloved businesses once stood proud.  
Below is a list of stories that have recently ran in major press outlets, many of which The Alliance, our members, and other business leaders are featured in! The NYC hospitality industry's voice must be heard! Help amplify these stories on social media using #SmallBizSOS.
