About the Save NY Call Centers Coalition
The Save NY Call Centers Coalition is made up of labor and community groups throughout New York State with a common goal of fighting for New Yorkers and our communities. There are over 260,000 call center workers in New York, but over the last 12 years, we’ve lost nearly 40,000 call center jobs. Call centers are easier to move than other jobs, making them a prime outsourcing target for CEOs. But the results are predictable: outsourcing hurts New York families, depresses wages, and exploits labor from around the world with poverty-level pay.
The NY Call Center Jobs Act aims to prevent the outsourcing of jobs from New York State to other locations to keep our communities strong.
