Fund Excluded Workers, The Hunger Continues

21 days ago, workers across New York State began their hunger strike to demonstrate the urgent need to include $3.5 billion in the state budget to Fund Excluded Workers. Emergency income support has left out various groups of people including undocumented immigrants, people recently released from incarceration, and others. On April 5th, people from all over NYState came to Albany to demand financial support for the excluded New Yorkers who have not seen any relief in the last year of the pandemic.
