Corporations and billionaires have driven the agenda in Albany and in local governments all across the state. They have rammed through cuts to worker wages, benefits, and rights as well as cuts to the services you rely on each day, all based on a promise that cuts would turn around our economy.
But, we’re no better off. Unemployment and underemployment are all too common, wages are declining, and poverty is pervasive.
The only way to reverse the trend is to strengthen our voice on the job and at the ballot box. That means supporting the efforts of all workers to raise their voices collectively on the job. And it also means increasing voter participation of hardworking New Yorkers through vote by mail, early voting, and voter registration, just to name a few.
