Syracuse Industrial Development Agency Adopts “Local” Hiring Standard

The Syracuse Industrial Development Agency has voted to require businesses receiving tax breaks to hire local workers for their projects.

Of course, their definition of local is workers from the counties of Onondaga, Cayuga, Cortland, Madison, Oneida and Oswego. And there is no real legal language to assure accountability.

I think we still have work to do!
