Tuition-free college Statement from 1199SEIU

“The healthcare workers of 1199SEIU applaud Governor Cuomo’s bold proposal to ensure tuition-free college for middle and lower-income New Yorkers. Working families have been facing rising student debt and stagnant incomes for decades now, and higher education began to seem like it was only viable for the privileged few. It is vital that everyone has the opportunity to go to college so that working people can get ahead and America can be a global leader in today’s information economy. We thank the Governor for taking up this crucial issue.” -George Gresham, President of 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East
