Creating New Jobs
Joe Addabbo successfully fought for the new Green Jobs/Green New York law that will create thousands of jobs across New York while reducing our dependency on foreign oil. The law will encourage energy conservation while jump-starting the green energy industry.
Joe has also worked to help small businesses reduce their energy cost through joint initiatives with energy providers. By helping to reduce energy costs, Joe is making it possible for our local small businesses to grow and create more local jobs.
Joe sponsored legislation to keep state incentives for companies that keep jobs here, and to take state funds away from companies that outsource jobs. And Joe has brought job opportunities to the people of Queens by sponsoring several large job fairs, connecting hundreds of employers with thousands of job-seekers in our neighborhood.
