New York City has passed legislation that will allow employees to work remotely, showing other companies how it could impact their workforce. The new law is expected to make New York one of the most competitive places in the nation for talent and could revolutionize technology as we know it.
New York’s “live birth abortion law” is a law that will allow women to terminate their pregnancies up until the moment of birth. This legislation has been met with mixed reactions.

The leaked Supreme Court ruling that will overturn Roe v. Wade has stunned and upset millions of Americans. This was my mother’s battle, my battle, and my daughter’s battle. Unfortunately, it looks that my baby granddaughter has inherited it.
New York has long been at the forefront of the fight for human rights, with suffrage three years before the 19th Amendment, marital equality four years before it was recognized by the courts, and legalized abortion three years before Roe.
I will not allow us to regress as New York’s first female governor. My team and I are striving to guarantee that everyone has access to high-quality, low-cost healthcare, including abortion. We established an Abortion Access Working Group to meet frequently with patients, clinicians, and activists to ensure that health-insurance plans cover abortion services without cost-sharing. We also assured that physicians may provide abortion telemedicine services without obstacles.
We are also on the offensive in the face of this onslaught on abortion access. We announced on Tuesday that we are giving $35 million in much needed funds to abortion clinics in order to enhance capacity and strengthen patient and staff security. I’m proud of our nation-leading response—we were the first big state to establish such a fund.
This contrasts sharply with states such as Georgia, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Texas, who are attempting to pass outright abortion bans. We need everyone who supports reproductive rights to fight back, and the cause also requires commercial sector supporters. Some businesses in states that restrict abortion access provide transportation for workers to have an abortion outside of the state.
There is, however, a better approach for such CEOs to safeguard their workers’ fundamental rights. Keep your activities out of states that impose these draconian limitations. Make the move to New York.
Not only does the Empire State have the best workforce, a history of cutting-edge innovation, significant infrastructure expenditures, and a top-tier business environment, but it also has an unbreakable pledge to protect and enforce equal rights for everyone.
Under my leadership, we will always provide a safe haven for individuals seeking abortion access and maintain equal protection for all of our citizens, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. If your firm is contemplating relocating here, I can tell you that you will never have to issue a press release distancing yourself from our policies or pay for your workers to go out of state for medical treatment.
Employees prefer to work for organizations that value their rights. These selections are also being watched by consumers. The greatest approach for businesses to demonstrate that they care about their employees’ health and well-being is to operate in a state that does.
My advice to CEOs who want to speak up and be counted in favor of equal rights for everyone is simple: come to New York and join the other firms that are currently thriving here.
The Statue of Liberty has been in our port for many years, welcoming both immigrants and refugees. Corporations looking for a place that values and defends its workers’ rights will also be welcomed with open arms.
