New Poll Shows Likely San Jose Voters Overwhelmingly Support Local Hiring, Responsible Development

Earlier today, the South Bay Labor Council, along with Responsible Development San Jose, Working Partnerships USA, and the Santa Clara and San Benito Counties Building and Construction Trades Council released the results from a poll showing overwhelming voter support for a ballot measure that would require local construction projects hire local workers and pay them a competitive rate.

The online poll conducted by EMC Research surveyed 911 randomly selected likely November 2018 voters in San Jose. More than three-quarters of respondents approve of a potential measure that would require large- and medium-sized San Jose commercial and residential development projects that receive a subsidy, or other incentive, to hire local workers and pay them a family sustainable wage.

Overall, voters are strongly supportive of giving the skilled construction trade workforce access to career development, job opportunities, and good wages.
