Adams stands with DSNY workers demanding pay and gender equity in shot across Garcia’s bow


Mayoral candidate Eric Adams joined New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY) employees at a rally in Queens on June 14, demanding racial and gender pay equity.  

The rally occurred as the latest poll has former Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia running a close second behind Adams in the race to become the 110th mayor of New York City.

During the following Q&A, Adams addressed claims that he was only criticizing Garcia because she was second in the latest polls. He said that the sanitation workers approached him when they learned that their former boss was running for mayor.
