  1. I am unemployed construction worker, new to this work despite my age, currently laid off from the Syracuse Development project, due to a lack of funding. I am eager to get beck to work as I do not have (couldn’t qualify for) unemployment insurance. The sub-contracted company that hired me awaits payment from COR development, the GC currently indicted for bribery.
    Can you offer any perspective on this projects future? Maybe I should just go in search of other work rather than wait for funding in the near future.
