In an expression of gratitude to our city’s construction workers for their hard work, attorney John Nonnemacher of Oresky & Associates, visited a number of sites in the Bronx where workers gathered, to give out turkey sandwiches in celebration of the Thanksgiving holiday. John was joined by members of the Oresky team who volunteered to help. The day was extremely cold, but the goodwill warmed the hearts of the workers and volunteer alike! We wish to give a special thanks to the delegation representing the Catholic Charities Community Services – Jornaleros de Bruckner / South Bronx Day Laborers who provided us with great assistance in connecting with workers this day.
Attorney John Joseph Nonnenmacher Meet the Construction Workers in the Bronx, NY
John was heartily welcomed by the laborers and many from the Latin America community who appreciated his efforts to communicate with them in Spanish. In addition to distributing the turkey sandwiches, John spent time explaining to the workers their rights under the law.
Sadly, day laborers remain largely anonymous in the hearts and minds of our society and far too often, they simply blend into the background of city life. We hope that more people realize that these construction workers come out each day in search of work to support their families, and their work in constructing our city’s buildings, our home improvement projects, and in the construction trade in general are contributions that should be appreciated. Here at Oresky & Associates, we want people to know that we recognize their contributions and that we are committed to protecting their rights.
Oresky & Associates for Construcion Workers Safety & Legal Rights
As Thanksgiving has passed and the year 2019 comes to an end, we would like to say that Oresky & Associates will remain committed in the coming year not just to providing legal services, but to supporting safety training programs for construction workers and helping these hard workers protect their legal rights.
We had a really wonderful time celebrating Thanksgiving this way and we hope that many of you will consider volunteering in some way during the upcoming holidays.
