BROOKLYN - Workers rallied at Borough Hall Tuesday saying that not enough is being done for worker safety at construction sites around Brooklyn.

Members of Build Up NYC, a coalition of unions and low wage workers, hosted the events. Those in attendance said that two workers have died at city constructions sites in the past two months.

They are asking that lawmakers require real estate developers that benefit from public subsidies and tax breaks to provide proper safety equipment and training to workers on those sites. They also want developers to use local workers to create jobs in the area.
