De Blasio’s ‘fiscal savings’ a loss to taxpayers, a gift to teachers union

That was fast. Last Thursday, Mayor de Blasio ­informed the United Federation of Teachers that the city couldn’t afford a $900 million bonus for union members. It took 24 hours for the union to knock this threat down — and wring a better deal from out-of-work taxpayers.

The state must step in.

How did New York City end up on the hook for a near-billion-dollar payment during the worst fiscal crisis ever?

You can thank de Blasio. In Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s final term, the global economy melted down — and Bloomberg told teachers that if they wanted raises, they would have to pay for them through work-rule or benefits changes.

The teachers waited Bloomberg out, and de Blasio delivered in his first six months. He offered a contract that included $3.6 billion in back pay.

Only problem: The city didn’t have $3.6 billion. The “thinking”: The city would surely have

Transgender women in rugby union: Stonewall criticises World Rugby decision

An Ireland v USA women's international
Transgender women are now unable to play international rugby union

LGBT rights campaigners have criticised World Rugby’s decision to prevent transgender women from competing at the highest levels of the women’s game.

New guidelines published on Friday “do not recommend” transgender women play contact rugby “on safety grounds”.

National unions can be flexible in their application of the guidelines at community level.

LGBT charity Stonewall says it is “deeply disappointed” with the decision.

“The proposals were based on hypothetical data modelling that has little relevance to the questions of fairness and safety in rugby that the policy review sought to address,” said Stonewall chief executive Nancy Kelley.

“Important policies like this should be based on robust, relevant evidence and work closely with trans people playing in the sport.”

Transgender men remain permitted to play men’s contact rugby union, but the sport’s governing body says a review of its existing guidelines

Biden’s Gift-Wrapped Union Agenda Would Make Bernie Blush

Attempting to assuage concerns that his candidacy for president is a stalking horse for far-left policies, Joe Biden recently reminded reporters in Wisconsin that he “beat the socialist” in the Democratic primary.

Indeed, Biden vanquished Bernie Sanders as a candidate; but the Vermont senator can take pride in the fact that his policy agenda has all-but-conquered key components of Biden’s platform, including the former vice president’s plan to revitalize labor unions.

In a gaffe-ridden livestream on Labor Day, Biden told the AFL-CIO that, if elected president, he’d ensure unions would “never have a better friend or a stronger ally in the White House.” Indeed, Biden backs a suite of far-reaching proposals that would benefit both private-sector and government unions while harming American workers, businesses, and taxpayers.

In July, the “Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force” released a list of progressive policy recommendations for Biden’s campaign. The presidents of each of the
