Small Business is our Business

Long Island commuters contribute substantially to the bi-county’s economy.  The Long Island Research Institute  recently examined the latest U.S. Census Data from its Journey To Work survey.  Thirty-nine percent (39%) of all wages and salaries Long Islanders earned are from those who commute to the city. Nassau commuters represent almost 57% of those wages and salaries returned  to the county, while Suffolk commuters earned 21%.  The New York City  continues to be very important to the Long Island economy.
