Hundreds of New York City restaurant workers and owners marched to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office in Manhattan Monday to demand that restaurants be allowed a 50% indoor dining capacity. (Sept. 28)
MARK FOX: They're there this morning, concentrating on a Supreme Court nomination and an election. But here we are on our knees.
$124 billion package in the Restaurants Act that has universal support is languishing because their priorities are on partisanship, and it's a disgrace.
ONECA LAZARUS: I wish it was enough to have 25%. Last year-- I mean last Friday, they said we could have outdoor dining all year round. They said we could use propane heaters to heat up our customers.
That's great. That's really great. But I'm going to ask you again, is that enough?
ONECA LAZARUS: Is that enough?
CHRIS PAGE: It's really about the survival rate for these restaurants. At 25%, we won't be able to survive. I'm literally on four weeks right now. We have four weeks to go. That's where we're at. We're on our knees. We're not lying when we say we're on our knees.
