NYC Offering Counseling for Public Employees Distressed by Trump Election

Posted by on Dec 12, 2016 at 8:47 am

We’re so old we can remember New Yorkers being tough, grizzled folks who could handle adversity. That dark day of September 11, 2001 was a reminder that everyone could come through even the most horrific events standing proud and tall.

Fast forward 15 years and we have public employees being given counseling because they can’t handle the results of an election.

Unbelievable. What a bunch of pussies.

The government of New York City is offering counseling and support services for its city workers who are feeling “distressed” or “vulnerable” following last month’s elections. In an email sent to city government employees last week and obtained by THE WEEKLY STANDARD, a coalition of agencies offered to “share information and resources and to provide support” for workers.

“Many New Yorkers may be feeling distressed or vulnerable following the election results,” the message begins. “We have seen the concerns expressed on social media and we are monitoring them closely.”

The email, which contained the subject line, “Feeling stressed? Resources for City employees”, included the letterhead of three organizations: the New York City Employee Assistance Program; Thrive NYC (the city government’s mental health initiative); and Work Well NYC, which runs the city workers’ health plan. But plenty of other government agencies are involved in the initiative to help New York city employees.

This stooge Bill de Blasio has been whining like a little bitch about the cost of keeping Trump Tower secure, but he’s spending money on adult babies who can’t handle a little adversity in their lives.

“[T]he Office of the Deputy Mayor for Strategic Policy Initiatives and Thrive NYC have partnered with the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs (MOIA), the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), the Department of Education (DOE), the Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD), the Office of Labor Relation’s Employee Assistance Program (OLR EAP), providers and others to share information and resources and to provide support,” the email reads. “We hope to maintain resilience, raise awareness of symptoms to support early intervention, and provide information about available resources, including NYC Well, the City’s 24/7/365 connection to care, which offers with interpretation services in over 200 languages.”

They’re going to maintain resilience by consoling people in over 200 languages. Seems legit.
