Industrial Action Plan One Year Later: What Has Moved and What Hasn't

November 3, 2016

On the one-year anniversary of Mayor de Blasio’s unveiling of the Industrial Action Plan, various critical components of the 10-Point Vision remain unfulfilled. While aspects of the plan have moved forward, others have either seen little progress or gone a different direction than the original intent. Ultimately, the purpose of the plan is to ensure that New Yorkers can continue to tap into economic opportunity and mobility.

  • Industrial advocates today sent a letter to the Administration highlighting major concerns and the urgency for advancing the full breadth of the Industrial Action Plan.
  • Evergreen Exchange, North Brooklyn’s Industrial Business Service Provider, has a new video that demonstrates just why #ManufacturingMatters, not only for its strong wages, but for its crucial role in supporting local economies.
  • The economic opportunity presented by the industrial and manufacturing sector was covered in the New York Times last week. In addition to reinforcing many points previously raised in the City Council’s Engines of Opportunity report, The Times reminds us that most manufacturers are small businesses, employing less than 20 workers.

As the Industrial Action Plan enters its second year, we are optimistic of opportunities to work alongside fellow advocates and with the City and the Council to develop an equity agenda that provides economic opportunities for all New Yorkers.
