Workers’ World Today is a free publication that empowers all workers, regardless of social or political affiliations. Distributed throughout New York City, our paper has a mission to educate workers and provide them with relevant information pertinent to the workforce such as workers’ compensation, discrimination on the job, workers’ rights, and more.
CUNY Rising, an alliance of workers, students, and communities fighting for free and quality college education, has launched a campaign to win a New Deal for CUNY. Sign on here to add your support. CUNY is often the best chance for a college education for poor and working-class New Yorkers, for New York City’s communities of color, for successive waves of new immigrants, for the urban middle class. Yet years of underfunding have led to annual tuition hikes, reduced student services, faculty and staff shortages—and now in the COVID Recession, layoffs of almost 3000 adjunct instructors.
The New Deal for CUNY reimagines public investment in the colleges that educate the workers of New York City and their children. It calls for the return of free tuition at CUNY and a fully-funded university with adequate staffing, robust student counseling, and advisement, and safe, modern facilities. Add your name in support of the New Deal for CUNY.
