Albany - Today is the culmination of a decades-long fight centered upon one simple premise: that farmworkers deserve fairness, equality and justice.

Today, justice was finally served.

We will never forget all of the farmworkers who have come forward through the years, many times at great risk to their livelihoods. They had the courage of their convictions to speak up for themselves and for others, to fight for what they believe in.

The misinformation campaign being spread by some, regarding public works legislation, cannot go unaddressed.

Anytime taxpayer dollars are used on construction work, we should be raising the standard of living and quality of life for our workforce and all New Yorkers.

That’s what the Public Works legislation will do.

The bill simply addresses the legal, regulatory and legislative changes that have eroded the intent of the public works law.
