The Mayor Adams administration says that they have turned things around for the working class New Yorkers over the last two years.  
According to the mayor’s office, jobs are up and crime is down. New York City has seen a decline in five of the seven major crime categories – most notably, a 25% drop in shootings and an 11% drop in homicides.  
In that time frame, 282,000 private-sector jobs and 44,000 new businesses have been created.  
Mayor Adams says that more work needs to be done in the city – particularly regarding the asylum seeker crisis and providing not only food, clothing and shelter, but aiding migrants in submitting work documentation and other important paperwork for their stays in NYC.
