CGR and the Westchester Public Issues Institute conducted two
surveys on the housing challenge facing W estchester County. One
survey targeted Westchester County employers and the second,

cost and its twin, extended commutes from other counties, is
increasing turnover among lower-paid workers, eroding loyalty at
Westchester County firms.
