In Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer blames the more infectious variant of the Corona virus that was first seen in the UK She's urging her state's residents to voluntarily take a two week pause on indoor dining and other gatherings. Here's Whitmer, speaking on CBS. What's happening in Michigan today could be what's happening in other states tomorrow, and so it's on all of us to recognize we can squash where we're seeing hot spots.

"Blasio is just announcing right now that New York City schools Chancellor Richard Carranza is stepping down in a statement that there just now releasing the mayor says Carranza will be replaced by my Isha Porter. Order is a Queens native who has worked in the school system for decades as a teacher, principal and superintendent shall be the first black woman to serve in that role. De Blasio special also be the first person appointed from within the Department of Education leadership. In recent history. Carranza, of course, led the nation's largest school system here in New York City for three years. He oversaw the pandemic response, which is ongoing. I have a question about what he's leaving in the middle of this school year, given all the pandemic management that is taking place. And he's attempted to lead major changes designed to address racial inequities in the school system. Mayor De Blasio will join us next hour and our weekly asked the mayor segment. So of course we will talk about the departure of Richard Carranza. Appointment of my Isha Porter and much more that's coming up at 11 30 this morning. Otherwise will begin today with a take on the sexual harassment allegations against Governor Cuomo by Lindsay Boiling, the former chief of staff of the agency, known as Empire State Development. Former special advisor to the governor, deputy secretary for economic Development and a current Manhattan borough president. Candidate. Boylan left the governor's office in 2018 on Wednesday. Boylan went public with things, she says on Lee, a few close friends, family members and her therapist. Have known for years. Her allegation that Cuomo sexually harassed her repeatedly, including an unwanted and surprised kiss on the lips in his office and a joke during an airplane ride. That they should play strip poker. The governor denies these things. But they come in the context of widespread discussion since last week of how Cuomo behaves as a boss. As you probably know. Queens Assemblyman Ron Kim touched this off on this show and elsewhere when he said Cuomo threatened his career this month if he didn't help the governor, downplay the undercount. Of nursing home deaths from Cove it here is Assemblyman Kim on this program last Thursday. I called it the right. It wasn't just the bowling. He threatened my political Career, my livelihood in front of my family. My wife was shaken for two hours that night. She couldn't go to sleep. I was in the middle of trying to bait my kids. It was intimidating, and it was scary. Means Assemblyman Ron Kim here last week. Since then, many other people have come forward to accuse Cuomo of a bullying style. And on Wednesday, Lindsay Boylan published an essay on medium That detailed her own story and put it in the context of Ron Kim's, she wrote, in part quote. Governor Andrew Cuomo has created a culture within his administration, where sexual harassment and bullying is so pervasive that it is not only Condoned but expected. Is inappropriate behavior toward women was an affirmation that he liked you that you must be doing something right. He used intimidation to silence his critics. And if you dare to speak up You would face consequences, Unquote. Now. The New York Times says it spoke to three people who worked in the governor's office during this Boylan's time there and that the people who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that while they could not corroborate her allegations, they concurred that the governor would sometimes make inappropriate remarks during work. And comment on people's appearances. Times also did confirm the airplane rides that forgive, Forgive me confirmed that airplane rides and a meeting in the governor's office at least took place. So we're going to take on this and what should happen next from New York political consultant Alexis Grinnell, who founded the company pithy of politics and is a frequent contributor to the Daily News, as well as a columnist for the Nation. When Cuomo was New York State attorney general. She was his deputy director of intergovernmental affairs That was back before 2010 back in November as the current storm was only beginning to gather around the governor. Alexis wrote a column very critical of his governing style in the nation called the Collapse of the Cuomo Sexual. Hi, Alexis. Always good to have you welcome back to W N. Y C. Thank you, Brian. It's great to be here and even back in November, your lead paragraph referred to quote the Andrew Cuomo. New Yorkers mostly know and tolerate the snarling attack dog gaslights, fellow Democrats. Employs staff to call his female critics effing idiots, and you went on from there. What was the context for starting an article that way in November Well, um, the I wrote the column at the time when the governor lashed out Jimmy Deol kind at the Wall Street Journal for asking a question about school closures. And it was the kind of weight I'm gonna jump then because you call that out. We have that clip. So let's play that for even a little bit more context. Jimmy Veal kind at one of almost Press briefings was asking about how parents are confused by the opening and closing and the different zones and that there seemed to be met. Mixed messages about What levels of schools would be opened or closed when So what are you talking about? How What do you talking about? You're now going to override We did it already. That's the law and orange zone in a red zone. Follow the fax within your confused I'm confusing. Then I'll tell you what, you me parents.

"To clash. His naysayers was seen in. The last few days is continued questions about. Why was this data not released earlier. What was the delay and we've also seen tactics. That cuomo administration has used since governor. Cuomo took office in twenty eleven sort of bursting into public view. Assemblyman ron jim. One of the leading critics. Here he recounted a phone call that he had with governor cuomo. In which according to kim the governor threatened threatened ruin his political career according to cuomo. Those threats were not made but the governor did say that he had talked to kim. Talk to him about issuing a statement about what happened in that private meeting with melissa derosa and kim called cuomo bully you call them an abuser on the view right. And that's not new. That has been sort of true in your politics for a long time. But you know the world is the world is changing. This kind of behavior in in all kinds of reforms is is not as easily excused as it as it once was so republicans started talking about possibly impeaching the governor members of the democratic party. They were talking about sort of stripping away some of the authority they delegated to cuomo march to handle the pandemic and it sounds like democrats who control the state. Senate are going to act coming up this week. How would the governor losing his emergency powers impact. New york's krona virus response moving forward. That's an open question at this point the days of commanding schools to shutdown with forty eight hours. Notice and closing bars and bowling alleys. Those are those are generally behind us so it seems that this action is largely symbolic People close to the governor and others noted that the nursing home situation at nothing to do with his emergency powers from the gecko. So i guess. I'm trying to figure out looking at how this is played out. How much of what's going on. It's a pr problem for the governor. And how much of it is a real problem for constituents like the number of deaths in nursing homes in new york is it notable. This new data does newark. Standout among other states governor cuomo talks about the year of pandemic debts in nursing homes versus other facilities it. How new york's share is actually lower than some other states horse. That's just the is of no comfort to someone who's loved one passed away. They don't care about what the current is with other states. What some political observers have said it is that it's a cliche but that the cover up is worse than the underlying action And so the fact that governor cuomo and state delayed the release of the state of for so long that they had to be forced. Release the data for so long and that their explanations for the delay changed over time basically have people include in the words of the republican leader in the state assembly that the governor public relations ahead of public house. And i think that that is why this is coming to the fore now in a very significant way i wonder if heating cuomo is going to be remembered as a successful executive when it comes to covid far too early to to say We already saw one preliminary poll which showed that andrew cuomo who's job approval had slept since january We'll have to see what happens in the next call. Now that there's more information about how these acted and what's going on but he's not gonna face voters until in a primary election june of twenty two. What can happen.

New York Gov. Cuomo Lashes Out at Critics As Outcry Over Nursing Homes Grows

"It's criticism of new york state coronavirus response. That's irritated governor cuomo to the point of lashing out specifically criticism of how the governor's office has been counting the deaths of cove patients in nursing homes. So i asked jimmy veal kind to take me back in. Explain how this data error could lead the governor to reveal a less savory side of his personality a side of himself. he's managed to keep under wraps at least for the last few months it turns out this data error. It's tangled up in some policy decisions. The cuomo administration made about nursing homes way back at the beginning of the pandemic. You have to start in the first week of march where there were lots of unknowns. Far more was was not known them was known and governor cuomo had had just sort of his did over a slow glide shutdown of the state finally came to pass on on march twenty. It took him a while to make the decision. There is a week of sort of incremental closures. Different people debated whether or not he should have acted faster. But that's sort of was was decision point number one decision point number two was concerned about hospital capacity in certain that the fires it already spread pretty widely. More people are getting affected in governor. Cuomo talks time and time again about images that he saw from italy where hospitals were overrun where patients were outside on gurneys or stuffed into hallways and people were essentially being turned away and he said so often that that was his biggest fear so in that environment hospital. Executive talked to the governor's team in said we've traveled. We have patients who no longer need to be. Hospital is but they're sitting in our beds because we have no place the discharge them the normally would get discharged homes either. I kind of probably or for a long-term residents but the nursing homes were saying we're really scared. We don't want these covy positive patients and so you have this tension between nursing homes and hospitals and what new york state did was it. It basically listened to the concerns of hospitals so march twenty fifth the state health department issued a directive which said that a nursing home could not refuse to admit a patient which it would otherwise be able to care for solely on the basis of being positive for covid nineteen a nursing. Home operator said this was effectively in order to take these patients in some of immediately objected. They immediately said we're concerned. This is going to exacerbate the spread of covid nineteen facilities but the order stood. Was there evidence that it did exacerbate the spread in their facilities. Well this is where it gets tricky. We know that thousands of patients were transferred from hospital into nursing homes around the state retreat march twenty fifth and may ten when this health department directive was re modified rescinded revert. You can you can take your so. The question is did. The corona virus come to nursing homes the result of this in july. The state health department put out a report which looked at the data and it looked at the dates of death. The dates of first positive cases in nursing homes around the state. It's inclusion was that in most nursing homes. The first introduction of corona virus happens before any of these patients were transferred before the directive was issued on march twenty fifth. It was staffers bringing it in. They lead that. It was safran because the correlation because the infection rates in nursing homes correlated with the surrounding community right. Obviously a nursing. Home doesn't exist. In a bubble people work there. You know somewhere else to live. And the health department said this was actually the factor even though nursing home operators said from the beginning. Hey this order. It's not helping. It's only hurting and to this day. There are operators to say that they believe it contributed to the spread. If not in some instances was the primary ause of the spread. It's unclear even now whether this policy forcing nursing homes to take in covid positive patients affected newark's total death toll that's because of a pretty grim calculus. It's possible that additional deaths in nursing homes were actually offset because freeing hospital beds allowed more coronavirus patients to be treated what we do know now. At least is that cova deaths in nursing homes. Were not being tallied correctly. That's because of a patient became so sick. They were transferred back to a hospital. That death was counted as a hospital. Death making it nearly impossible to understand. Just how much. The virus was ravaging long term care facilities.

New York Lawmakers Preparing Gig-Worker Bill Eye California’s Challenges

"You've probably met a GIG worker in the last week. They might have brought you lunch or driven you to work or maybe you're a GIG worker yourself. Those kinds of jobs jobs are supposed to be part time short term or at least on your own terms but for a lot of gig workers. That description doesn't fit. The work they do. California was the first State State to enact new legislation to try to change things for Gig workers and now New York might be joining the ranks here to explain more. Is Our reporter kind. Jimmy thanks for joining joining us. Huckabee here so let's back up. The big crux here is what it means to be a GIG worker as opposed to a regular employee. So what do people actually mean when they talk about that so people who do work for apt based platforms everything from Uber and lift to Dora Dash and post host mates they are considered independent contractors of those actual tech companies in other words Uber Sees itself as simply a facilitator. You don't work for Uber. You are making money from driving people around and what that means is that Uber does not have to pay into some of the things that that many statutory employees and the companies that employ them are subject to that includes unemployment insurance in New York. Our system of peed family leave They're not subject to minimum wage. Laws are not subject overtime laws. And there's a push by labor unions to say wait a minute. These are not necessarily people who are. We're doing this on a Friday night to earn some extra money. This is not necessarily someone who's retired and likes to drive a few days a week or a few hours a week to earn some extra cash there are people who are doing this kind of work basically fulltime and if they are they deserve these protections and rights that are extended by statute to other employees. So the crux of this is a legal question. It's been partially taken to court. Part of it is happening in statehouses across the country including California -fornia where Governor Gavin newsom September's signed a bill that broadly reclassifies workers for these based companies as technical employees and in New York. We're just starting to have hearings and formulate legislation that will be considered when our state legislature reconvenes at the capital in Albany in January. So let's go back to that California. You mentioned it goes into effect on January. First what how are they tackling this issue so it creates what's called an ABC test which which requires three things of someone to be a not an employee of the company. I the contractor would have to have control all over the tasks assigned if you think about this for a freelance writing or four freelance graphic design. You say draw me a logo rate me. An article magazine Article about topic the X. Y.. Z. You have some degree of autonomy over what you're doing number two. You have to be outside the normal course of business of the company so if I were a widget factory and I hired someone to do marketing as a contractor. It'll be a pretty easy argument that since they're not making widgets they are an independent contractor tractor and the third leg of the school the Sea of the ABC test is that the the contractor or the worker would have to normally be holding themselves elves out as an independent contractor so there are of course many people who do this there are freelance marketers. There are attorneys for example. There are dentists. If if you WANNA think about it in that way and so this test is designed to capture people who are regularly engaged in specific specified fight work. That's coming through an APP that you might have thought of as employment unions have been saying that the models upon which many of these technology the companies operate is essentially exploiting workers. Again the companies. Say That you have to think of work in a new way you have to understand understand. That workers have unprecedented flexibility as a result of these APPS and again many people who are logging on and utilizing them for income are not necessarily trying to make a living out of it. And don't think of it as a full-time real quote unquote job. I think that brings up a really interesting point so so. Are you saying that Uber in itself wouldn't have to reclassify every uber driver as an employee. You would look at each individual driver and decide. Is this person actually an employee or is this person. A GIG worker. The California law creates a rebuttal presumption that these people would be employees unless the company can prove otherwise so essentially it defaults them as employees unless Some kind of action or circumstances is Demonstrate to the contrary what the problem has been that New York lawmakers tackling. Is that this test. It's not the most elegant thing. The California for new law has exceptions for a number of professions In New York at legislative hearing that occurred on December fifth there were several people who said that their professions should be exempted included. A travel advisor included a online instructor who teaches English as a second language and New York. Lawmakers are trying to come up with perhaps a more attest that will create greater nuance than what we've seen happen in California with the California bill on the other side there are are also people arguing that the California bill is fine. That New York has adopted a similar. ABC Test in the past ten years and applied it to truck. Drivers drivers also applied it to the building trade industries. And if there's no reason to expand necessarily those tests to to all work so California and New York two very big states they're also states that often set the precedent for the rest of the country when it comes to labor laws as their renegotiating. This New York. Can we expect a region figuring in California. And can we expect this to kind of broaden out to the rest of the country. There was UNA tempt by governor. newsom to work out a compromise between some of the tech companies and unions It seems that that has fallen apart over the autumn right now the tech companies are working to try to undo the California law. They've committed millions of dollars to fund a ballot referendum for the twenty twenty elections in California ed some of them have filed lawsuits and others have said that they will not change their practices in response to the law so California is more or less in a state of war over the law. New York work hasn't really gotten to the starting gate yet. The unions started to push for this last year. They've promised that they're going to redouble their efforts in in the coming year but also think tech companies are also working to get their voice at the table the fact that we haven't seen one big omnibus bill from several key lawmakers as an indication to me that New York might try some kind of a third way tech companies are pitching schemes. Where where they could offer portable benefits to workers so even if you're not an employee of a company or a platform you could access things like health insurance Perpetually actually death benefits et cetera through Some sort of third party or third party entity in New York. Where ride hailing was sort of late to the party? It exists with something called the Black Car Fund which was actually developed before right. He'll companies like Lebron left but gives drivers of black cars limousines deliveries the ability to get workers compensation funding even though. They're not necessarily employees of of anybody. They sort of our again. Independent contractors driving people around and facilitated by either an APP that tells them who to pick up and take them or Bob before the rise of smartphones. A radio dispatcher. There's a lot going on there. Reporter Jimmy veal kind. Thank you so much for joining us. Always a pleasure. Thanks so much for having yeah
