OUR VISION FOR THE FUTURE OF JOBS IN NEW YORK CITY

The gentrification of jobs represents a new barrier for poor and low-income New Yorkers who have been left out of the City’s employment gains over the last few years. To prevent the next chapter in New York’s “Tale of Two Cities,” Mayor de Blasio must invest in training, education, and union apprenticeship programs that lead to good paying, permanent jobs with a real pathway to the middle class for New York’s low-income communities of color that are struggling with the highest rates of unemployment.
