GOLES is surveying the community to find out what economic justice issues are important to residents, and will form an Economic Justice Steering Committee and campaigns out of this community-based research. GOLES is also working in coalition with the Retail Workers union and other groups on a citywide living wage campaign. The coalition is advocating for a new living wage ordinance that would affect employees of projects receiving public subsidies. If successful, this could have a great impact in reducing poverty for all New Yorkers.
