New York To Require Ventilation At Nail Salons

Following a 2015 New York Times exposé on the working conditions of New York’s nail salons, the state will require all salons to install ventilation systems to minimize the toxic chemicals manicurists are exposed to, though existing businesses have five years to comply. What do you think?

“I hardly think it’s fair for the government to make small businesses shoulder the cost of keeping their employees alive.”

Clive Paget • Screen Brightener


“Five years should be plenty of time for these businesses to find a loophole.”

Dave Ammer • Sandwich Regulator

“My nails need to look good. I never said there wouldn’t be a trail of bodies.”
