On Thursday, May 21nd a “nail salon day of action” was planned and implemented in NYC. Government officials and volunteers joined together to provide educational resources for New York City nail salon employees.
The movement was planned after a New York Times article was published exposing the deplorable working situations many nail salon employee’s face in NYC, including exposure to harsh chemicals, unjust pay and unreasonable schedules.
On Friday information was handed out in subways, salons, and other highly concentrated areas of nail salon technicians. The Mayor’s office organized this massive effort, and the Governor has plans to implement several other protocols in the near future.
