CEO Comments

“New York is expensive, taxes are high, difficult to find and keep good employees.”

“NYC is horrible with taxes and regulations. DeBlasio is making NYC the late ‘70s all over again.”

“Without a doubt, NY is the absolute worst state to conduct business. Taxes are out of sight, regulation is over the top, and the work ethic is less than desirable.”
