Unprotected Sandy Cleanup Hires Face Health & Safety Threats
with
Joel Shufro, Exec. Dir. NY Committee for Occupational Safety & Health ("NYCOSH")
and
Luzdary Giraldo, NYCOSH Community Outreach Organizer

NYCOSH is demanding employers and government agencies respond to the massive health and safety violations thousands of cleanup workers face in the wake of Sandy, so as not to repeat the 911 fiasco which continues to cost the lives of first responders. Thousands of Sandy workers are facing health and safety hazards as they cleanup the wreckage, and are forced to work 10 - 12 hour shifts often without even receiving the minimum wage. *****************
350 Economists Warn Obama and Congress:
Unwise Deficit Reduction Could Kill Recovery. Economy Needs Growth and Jobs, Not Austerity.
With
. Robert Pollin, Univ. ofMassachusetts, Economist and co-director of Political Economy Research Institute (PERI)
. Teresa Ghirarducci, Director of the Schwartz Center for Economic Policy Analysis at the The New School

Warning that the U.S. economy is still
"marked by mass unemployment, rising poverty, and declining wages." 350 prominent economists issued a
statement with the Campaign for America's Future that, "the fragile recovery is threatened by obsessive concern with cutting deficits that has infected both parties."

The economists' statement highlighted that drastic spending cuts adopted in a "grand bargain" aimed at avoiding sequestration could have such a contractionary impact on the still-fragile economy that the U.S. could join European countries in plunging into recession as a result of misguided austerity policies.
