City workers can deduct from their paycheck to help Haiti, de Blasio says

City workers will be able to deduct money directly out of their paycheck if they so choose to assist the people of Haiti as the country recovers from a devastating earthquake, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Wednesday.

“We want to encourage city workers, across the board, hundreds of thousands of city employees to get into the game and support this vital effort to help the Haitian people by making a donation through payroll deduction,” de Blasio said at his daily press briefing Wednesday.
