Good Jobs Are Essential to an Affordable New York


41% of construction workers rely on government assistance to make ends meet, and 25% lack healthcare. The solution? Good wages with healthcare and retirement security for ALL construction workers, union and non-union alike, to ensure they can afford a good life with family-sustaining wages and benefits. 

The people building our city deserve to be able to live in it too. With good wages and benefits, the construction industry will be the pillar of middle-class opportunity it has been for generations. This not only champions fairness and the dignity of our workforce, but also alleviates the taxpayer burden by decreasing reliance on public assistance programs – making New York more affordable for all.
