The New York State Laborers-Employers Cooperation And Education Trust On The CHIPS Act: It’s An Investment In The Future Of Working Men & Women

(ALBANY, NEW YORK) - New York State LECET (The Laborers-Employers Cooperation And Education Trust) is commending the Biden Administration for signing the CHIPS Act to boost domestic supply chains, combat the underinvestment in our country’s manufacturing and research and development capabilities, and bolster our technology infrastructure - all while making a strong investment in Working Men and Women.

The inclusion of Prevailing Wage requirements in the CHIPS Act ensures that the hundreds of thousands of construction jobs created will provide solid Middle Class wages, the organization said.

And the Men and Women employed on those job sites will also have the ability to put food on the table, take care of themselves and provide for their families, they added.

“The CHIPS Act is yet another significant step forward for the Men and Women who build our country from the ground up,” New York State LECET Executive Director Patrick Purcell said. “By investing in technology infrastructure, our country is making an investment in Working Men and Women.  New York State is open for business and the Members of the New York State Laborers Union are ready to build the future - and they are the BEST workforce to do it safely, with skill, on time, and under budget.”
