NYC May Become First City With Mandatory Paid Vacay

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio vowed Wednesday to make the city the first in the country to require employers to offer paid vacation days.

If you work hard and you don't get a break that's not fair," said the Democratic mayor, who said more than 500,000 full-time and part-time workers in the city currently have no paid vacation days or personal days. "New Yorkers need a break."

This announcement comes just one day after de Blasio announced a plan to spend $100 million a year on expanding health coverage for low-income New Yorkers.
