On the campaign trail, mayoral hopefuls have been rolling out their plans to revive the city's economy and different job sectors that have been hit hard during the pandemic.

But even as the city begins to receive federal stimulus funds and starts to ease COVID-19 restrictions on businesses, there are still hundreds of thousands of people out of jobs in the five boroughs, and the unemployment rate keeps growing. And the next mayor will need a plan to develop a new workforce and get New Yorkers back to work.

José Ortiz Jr., the executive director of the New York City Employment and Training Coalition, joined Errol Louis on “Inside City Hall” to talk about what the next mayor should do to help the city’s workforce recover from the consequences of the pandemic.
