Economic OppoRtunity And WorkerS’ Rights
Economic opportunities lift families to the middle class and empower communities. The son of a mechanic and a home health aide, Josue learned the importance of hard work at a young age. His mother was a proud 1199 SEIU member, and her job security helped the family save up to buy a home in Flatbush and achieve the American Dream. During his time working in the Comptroller’s office, Josue was a unionized member of OSA, the Organization of Staff Analysts. As a State Senator, Josue will:
Demand stronger local hiring requirements for projects in our community.
Fight for a livable wage across all industries.
Support growth for Minority and Women-Owned Businesses.
Improve access to job training programs.
Protect the right to unionize and defend unions against Republican attacks.
Oppose “Right to Work” laws.
