They Knew the Mob Runs NYC Construction Industry All Along
Just Read the NYS Organized Crime Taskforce 1988 Report or There is Gambling At Rick's Place? Why did the investigation begin only after in New Jersey, where agents were listening in on the phones of an alleged Luchese-run, Internet-based sports- gambling ring that authorities believe has netted $400 million for the crime family in the last two years. When information about New York-based mobsters and buildings inspectors started turning up on the New Jersey wiretaps, authorities there passed the information to New York, prosecutors said.

1988 Report: Corruption and Racketeering in the New York City Construction Industry: The Final Report of the New York State Organized Crime Taskforce (Paperback) Corruption and Racketeering In The New York City Construction Industry: The Final Report of the New York State Organized Task Force, lays out in close and compelling detail the intricate patterns of currupt activities and relationships that for the better part of a century have characterized business as usual in the construction industry in America's largest metropolis. The book is the end product of more than five years' worth of investigation, prosecutions, and research by the New York State Organized Crime Task Force, a unique agency that has set a national example for marrying law enforcement initiatives with comprehensive and exhausting analysis of the causes and dynamics of industrial racketeering. This is a sobering analysis of the construction industry , one of New York City's largest industries, and in effect, one of the city's most significant economic sectors. In any given year during the 1980s, billions of dollars of construction were being carried out at any one time. The industry regularly employs more than 100,000 people in the city, involving some one hundred union locals and many hundreds of general and specialty contractors as well as a large number of architects, engineers, and materials suppliers. The book shows—in great and provocative detail—how organized extortion, bribery illegal cartels, and bid rigging characterize construction in the city. The basis for much of this crim is labor racketeering, controlled or orchestrated by organized crime. It reveals how this world of corruption affects not only the private sector but the city's vast public works program, and it spells out the ways in which both organized crime and official corruption each sustain the dynamics of ongoing criminality. Wrong-doing on a massive scale is documented at length. But this book is more than a recitation of extensive and systematic criminality. The book recommends a number of plausible options for genuine reform. Necessarily these are profound and radical solutions, but everyone who reads this book will conclude that only profound and radical solutions could hope to solve such an entrenched and intractable crime problem

N.Y. Builders `Dependent' On Mafia The Mafia's grip on the city's $5 billion construction industry has turned it into a cesspool of bribery, extortion, false billings, tax fraud, no-show jobs, minority fronts, bid rigging, violence and sabotage, according to a state report released in 1988. The 130-page report by the state's Organized Crime Task Force says those in the industry have "become dependent on" corruption. It describes a system in which major developers "ignore" racketeering while reaping its benefits, contractors willingly pay off mob figures to preserve labor peace and unions make themselves easy targets for mob

  1. Once I thought about things like: why such information is for free here? Because when you write a book then at least on selling a book you get a percentage. Thank you and good luck on informing people more about it! Manhattan NY tax preparation
