Looking to make a couple bucks off of this weekend's massive blizzard? You may want to give Mayor de Blasio's office a call.
New York City is looking for additional emergency snow laborers to remove snow and ice from bus stops, crosswalks, fire hydrants, step streets and other areas throughout the city, the mayor's office announce Sunday.
Workers who qualify can make $13.50 per hour for 40 hours shoveling snow, with overtime pay coming to $20.25 per hour. Applicants have to be 18 years old, eligible to work in the United States and capable of performing manual labor.
To sign up, interested workers should go to a city garage with two small self portrait photos, two forms of ID and a social security card or a Tax ID number.
“This was one of the worst storms to ever hit New York City, and we need all hands on deck to dig us out,” de Blasio said. “As Sanitation’s uniformed workers continue to focus their herculean efforts on clearing our city’s streets, snow laborers will be critical in shoveling out other key locations, like crosswalks, hydrants, bus stops, and more.”
