Bill de Blasio on Jobs

 

 


Fight income inequality that creates Tale of Two Cities

Bill de Blasio is committed to fighting the income inequality that has created a 'Tale of Two Cities' across the five boroughs. Mayor de Blasio believes all New Yorkers deserve a chance to succeed in the greatest city on earth. That means every child gets a quality education, every community is safe, and every New Yorker has an affordable place to call home.

Since assuming office in 2014, the de Blasio administration has developed and executed transformative initiatives including Pre-K for All; Paid Sick Leave; neighborhood policing; and IDNYC.

Mayor de Blasio will also continue to be an outspoken progressive voice on issues that touch the lives of his fellow New Yorkers, including: income inequality, early childhood education, immigration reform, infrastructure, and voting rights. These issues of basic fairness for every New Yorker have animated Mayor de Blasio's life and career across three decades of activism and public service.

Peg living wage to increases in the cost of living

When wages rise, workers spend more in their neighborhoods, and local businesses can then employ more people. Bill de Blasio is committed to using a broad range of policies to help raise wage standards so everyone is able to live and support a family in relative comfort and security.

The living wage law should be pegged to increases in the cost of living and cover any large for-profit company receiving $1 million in economic subsidies. Any businesses receiving city subsidies should provide clear plans on providing health care for all their workers. Bill de Blasio will create a "responsible contractor policy" requiring all contractors and economic subsidy recipients to disclose and explain past and pending violations of labor, employment, environmental and workplace safety violations, and bar repeat offenders from receiving public money
