The outsourcing of call center operations has caused a massive loss of jobs and has had a profound negative impact on the state and the national economy.

CEO pay for major companies in the United States rose nearly 6% in the past year, as income inequality and the outsourcing of good-paying American jobs have increased. According to the new AFL-CIO Executive Paywatch, the average CEO of an S&P 500 Index company made $13.94 million in 2017—361 times more money than the average U.S. rank-and-file worker.

Take Action

A year ago New York union members led the way to the most impressive political victory in the history of this state – the defeat of the Constitutional Convention. Despite being down 40 points in the polls, Labor won on election day with an astonishing 83% of the vote.These days, it’s hard to get 83% of people to agree on anything, let alone an Election, but we did it - together. Another important Election Day is coming, and we need your help once again. It’s critical that you get out there and speak with your union brothers and sisters by participating in labor to labor, grassroots actions.As we showed with the Constitutional Convention, New York is union strong and it makes all the difference in the world.
