The Better Builder ® Program creates good jobs in the construction industry by establishing minimum standards on construction sites. These standards include a living wage for all construction workers, OSHA 10-hour safety training for all workers, workers’ compensation coverage, local hiring goals to place workers in approved skills training programs, and accredited, independent on-site monitoring to ensure these standards are met. As a city council member, will you support incorporating these standards onto projects where the city has both a substantial role and the ability to require higher worker protections, including (but not limited to) ground leases, Public Improvement Districts, density bonus programs, tax increment financing, abatements, and other city development programs designed for the utilization of private developers?
