Statement of NYS AFL-CIO President Mario Cilento in response to Marc Molinaro's MTA plan that tries to blame workers for transit repair costs

Albany, NY - “This is exactly what I would expect from someone who is working off the script of right wing conservative ideologues in Washington whose sole purpose is to vilify working people and their unions. Marc Molinaro predictably casts aside the vital role working men and women play, not just at the MTA, but to the economic well-being of our state. He would rather blame workers for subway repair costs than recognize New York's highly trained and skilled workforce is the only thing that keeps our state moving forward.”
