The Building Trades Employers Association, in partnership with Rebuild Renew New York, has published a study that proves the unionized construction industry will achieve New York State’s economic development plan by creating opportunities for MWBE contractors and the middle class.

The study highlights:

  • The Construction and Real Estate industry is a major contributor to New York City’s economy, comprising 20% of the City’s GDP.
  • Each $1 million in construction spending creates 8 jobs in New York City.
  • Each $1 spent on construction yields a total of $1.31 spent in New York City
  • Each job on a construction site results in a multiplier of 1.32 jobs

The unionized construction industry is a gateway to the middle class. The industry has the ability to create good jobs, while rebuilding the social fabric that makes the city great.
