TODAY! TUESDAY, January 26
Worcester City Council Economic Development sub-Committee Meeting
Worcester City Hall
Today the Worcester Community-Labor Coalition and allies will be presenting our proposal for a Worcester TIF Policy to city leaders.
We believe all TIF recipients must meet Worcester’s Equal Opportunity, CORI and Anti-Discrimination policies.
We believe all big developments receiving tax dollars should be built legally and by reputable contractors.
We believe all people who receive jobs through projects created through the TIFs should be guaranteed a livable wage of $15/hr.
Worcester is long overdue for a TIF Policy.
We need better oversight of how our tax dollars are being spent.
Worcester needs a TIF policy that supports targeted economic development without putting an additional burden on taxpayers.
We need to be certain that economic development created because of tax benefits, benefits the members of our community.
create quality jobs for local residents, both construction and permanent jobs
create job opportunities for our young people
Big developers should be held to a higher standard when receiving tax relief.
PLEASE come to Worcester City Hall to support these proposals! Let Worcester city councilors know you support LOCAL LABOR, LOCAL YOUTH AND A LIVING WAGE!
