New York City’s economy has never been stronger. The City has a record 4.5 million jobs and the lowest ever unemployment rate. But too many New Yorkers are living paycheck to paycheck, and deep income disparities exist, especially along racial lines. In a strong and fair city, everyone must have a chance to succeed, with fair wages, good working conditions, and an adequate safety net.
We fought for and won a $15.hour minimum wage and introduced new paid leave and sick leave laws to protect workers. We are on track to move 800,000 New Yorkers out of poverty or near poverty by 2025. The City is attracting and training workers in new and innovative sectors and ensuring that small businesses can grow. We have invested in City properties to create more access to affordable industrial and commercial space. Over the next decade, we will create 100,000 good-paying jobs.
We will diversify the City’s economy and create pathways to a good career by ensuring access to training and other opportunities for career advancement. We will enforce fair wages and good working conditions, guarantee access to retirement and health care benefits, and provide small-business owners with the tools and resources they need to succeed. We will expand the voice, ownership, and decision-making power of workers and communities. And we will strengthen the City’s long-term fiscal health to meet current and future needs.
Economic security and dignity are essential to creating a city where your success is not determined by where you come from. By promoting inclusive growth and a new social contract, we will correct historical inequities and ensure all New Yorkers can participate in the city’s strong and growing economy. We will build a city where economic growth creates opportunities for all New Yorkers. We will make New York City the fairest big city in America.
