Activists call on New York State DOL to make Excluded Workers Fund more accessible

According to Make the Road New York, the Excluded Workers Fund will provide help for approximately 290,000 workers in New York State, including 213,000 in New York City alone. Attendees had three core demands for the DOL: do not impose a high loss of income threshold, accept IDs and other documents excluded workers have not had the ability to renew thanks to the pandemic and provide in-person language accessible application assistance across the state.
