BILL NUMBER:S1935 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the labor law, in relation to prohibit- ing state funding to businesses that outsource jobs PURPOSE: Allow State funding when applicable to those companies that create jobs within New York state, and prohibit financial incentives for companies that send jobs outside the State. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 219 of the Labor Law, which details violations of certain wage payment provisions, is amended. EXISTING LAW: None, although efforts have been made in the New York State Legislature to address this topic. JUSTIFICATION: As jobs are consolidated and cut, and as companies recoup profits through different measures, workers will feel the effects through diminished wages, decreased work hours and loss of their posi- tion to lower paid workers. outsourcing is an attractable option for companies looking to cut their costs and it is our intention to create barriers for companies that utilize this option. A company should not be rewarded with state funding when they utilize the monies for workers outside the State.
