Right. I think enforcement of these labor laws actually falls to the state/local labor authorities and not Federal. Still surprising that NYC/NYS haven’t managed to do something about it yet.

Because they didn’t want to chase out the very industries that you refer to - the entertainment/news media businesses that are a significant source of state and local revenues. They think that they might lose business to other states that promote the entertainment industry - CA comes to mind, or Boston, or even DC to stay on the East Coast.
