We have to work together so we’re able to keep the things we have, like our health care and other benefits.

Statement by 32BJ President Hector Figueroa on Gov. Cuomo’s Worker Exploitation Task Force

Filed in

 

“We must protect workers in all facets of the economy, especially those who may be vulnerable to exploitation. Governor Cuomo is making clear that there is no room for malpractice among employers in the state, and those who violate the law will be subject to severe consequences. With these new laws to protect nail salon workers and a new task force to investigate exploitation across other industries, New York is moving forward in defense of unprotected workers.”
