For an organization that strongly works for laborers rights, they fail to address and fight for their own employees rights. Various staff members are over worked, labor rights are not enforced, overtime is required and work is suggested to be done in unreasonable amount of time. The past four years, this organization has had a financial deficit and has not been able to stabilize their numbers. Instead of looking for sustainable initiatives to assist every day work within the organizations it plans to punish their employees and cut their benefits to create a surplus for their funds. Department of Labor should look closely at Senior Leaderships methods of working with staff members within the organization.

I have been impressed with this organization's devotion to New York's many immigrant groups. They have successfully won requirements for interpreters to be available in schools, hospitals, police stations. They have also championed a bill to prevent employers from stealing the wages of their workers by making it illegal and putting penalties for such actions. They also work with GLBT teenagers to help them cope with discrimination.
