Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “New York Protesters Rally for Workers Excluded from Pandemic Benefits #Shorts” – below is their description.
Workers from various industries marched in New York City on Friday, calling for support for workers excluded from unemployment or pandemic-related benefits. #shorts
The demonstration included people working in construction, hospitality, and education, as well as yellow-cab drivers who drove over the bridge alongside people marching. The New York Taxi Workers Alliance (NYTWA) said the demonstration was for undocumented workers, who have been excluded from unemployment benefits and stimulus payments during the pandemic, and said New York City’s cab drivers “stand in solidarity” with workers struggling through the pandemic.
New York Communities for Change, a political activist group that posted this footage, said its members were marching “for all excluded workers, those who can’t pay rent and those who have lost work.” The group called for tax hikes for the wealthy and rent cancellation.
The demonstration closed lanes on both bridges, according to reports.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
