Make Sure Your Employees Are Counted! NYC Census 2020

The 2020 US Census is underway—we want to make sure that ALL of your employees are counted! This is particularly important here in NYC. Census data is used to determine the distribution of hundreds of billions of dollars for important services like public education, public and affordable housing, healthcare, roads and bridges, and more. NYS already sends over $116 billion more to the Federal government than we get back in support—the only way to ensure that NYS gets its fair share is to ensure that everyone living here is counted.

Please encourage your employees to complete the Census. This year the census can be filled out online!

Here is a flyer that can be included in paychecks, or hung on the wall near your timeclock.

And here is a poster that can be printed and hung in any common area.
