Jobs for Syracuse


We, the undersigned, believe that poverty hurts our city and our neighborhoods. Good jobs are the building blocks of vibrant neighborhoods. Therefore, we urge the Syracuse Common Council to pass a Resident Employment Ordinance requiring that, when the city contracts for construction, service and public works projects over $100,000, at least 20% of the contracted work hours go to Syracuse residents, and half of those hours go to city residents of stressed neighborhoods. 

Upon passage of a Resident Employment Ordinance, we must urge the Mayor to sign this ordinance and ensure that the law is implemented. This petition is a project of the Urban Jobs Task Force.
