A Time To Invest in Westchester's Unemployed
Manager Christopher Erikson led a contingent of unemployed Westchester Local #3
Electricians in a Rally on August 27, 2012 at the Westchester County Office
Building, White Plains, New York to ask the Westchester County Legislators to
work with and encourage the private sector to start projects now to help
unemployed members of Local #3 and the Building Trades get desperately needed

Community by putting unemployed men and women back to work, spending their
paychecks locally, providing for their families and paying much needed taxes to
our local communities
