NYC Councilman Jimmy Vacca on This Labor Day Weekend

Announcement

As we approach Labor Day, let us spend time with our families and make time for ourselves. But, Labor Day is really about recognizing working men and women and the contribution they have made to our country. They have been strengthened by unions that have long fought for worker rights. With both unemployment and under-employment too prevalent today, we should use this weekend to focus on how we can create more and better jobs!

Labor Day Weekend Gun Violence

Solution

The Bronx has once again fallen victim to a wave of disturbing gun violence.
