Insecurity on the streets and in NYC’s public transportation system represents a major obstacle to workers returning to their jobs and is one of the reasons why more and more people are considering leaving the state.

This was revealed by a new survey among the city’s private sector workers, which was conducted by the decision intelligence company Morning Consult on behalf of Partnership for New York City.

According to the survey, 40% of employees residing in Manhattan said they are considering moving out of New York, a thought shared by nearly half (48%) of workers living in the city’s other four boroughs.

Workers willing to collaborate

An overwhelming majority of respondents (94%) believe the state is not doing enough to address homelessness and mental health problems and link it to gun violence and insecurity. Likewise, 84% say that living conditions have worsened in the last two years.

Regarding crime, 85% of workers surveyed said that not enough was being done to address assaults and 77% consider efforts to mitigate gun violence insufficient.

Meanwhile, 57% said there was too much shoplifting and 46% believe the law on turnstile jumping in the subway system is not enforced.

The latter figure is supported by 74% of respondents, who see the COVID-19 pandemic as a factor that worsened the insecurity situation on public transportation.

Despite these concerns, and although 62% say they are pessimistic or unsure about the future of their state, more than 70% of employees express commitment to New York City and want to be part of its recovery.

The survey was conducted online between February 17 and March 11, 2022, and surveyed a sample of 9,386 adults who work in the city and live in the metropolitan area.
