While only 39% of New Yorkers think race relations in the state are excellent (4%) or good (35%) – compared to 58% who say they are fair (43%) or poor (15%) – that is up from the 2015 Siena Poll, which had 31% positive and 66% negative, including 28% poor, according to a new Siena College poll of New York State registered voters released Monday morning.
Sixty-eight percent say ethnic and racial minorities in New York experience discrimination, and 29% say in the last year, they’ve been treated unfairly because of their race, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation.
The Siena College survey showed that 74% of New Yorkers say sexual harassment in the workplace is a significant problem.
29% label it very significant.
14% say it’s not very significant, and six percent say it’s not at all significant.
More than one in three of us say we know about sexual harassment at work.
36% of women say they’ve been a victim, 10-percent in the last five years.
