A Living Wage Rally was called by the Retail, Wholesale, Department Store union on the steps of City Hall in New York City on May 25. The multinational rally brought together mostly low-wage workers — organized and unorganized — with support from union representatives as well as from religious and community groups. One of the main demands of the organizers was “Say no way to poverty pay.” Part of the May 25 rally leaflet reads: “Tell City Hall that when our public dollars subsidize private development, we deserve something in return: good jobs, good wages, good benefits.”
