Bank of America has reportedly advised its New York City staffers to “dress down” in an effort to avoid becoming a target for robberies or violent crimes, the New York Post reports.
The purported advice comes as lawlessness is on the rise in the Democrat-controlled city.
The Post’s Lydia Moynihan explained that senior executives at the company have “quietly encouraged” some of the company’s junior employees to “dress down” in order to “attract less attention” while traversing the city to Bank of America’s tower at 1 Bryant Park.
