Make Work Pay NY

In New York, workers receiving unemployment insurance are severely penalized for working part time, often taking home less income than if they remained unemployed. A.7278a/S.6572 would finally eliminate the reemployment penalty and make work pay in NY.

Make Work Pay NY is a coalition of organizations in New York State seeking to strengthen jobless benefits for underemployed workers.  It’s anchored by the Retail, Wholesale, and Department Store Union, Retail Action Project, Center for Frontline Retail, National Employment Law Project, and New York State AFL-CIO.
