City Council Speaker Christine Quinn has scheduled for May 12 a hearing on the so-called "living wage" bill to require most businesses in city-subsidized developments to pay up to $11.50 an hour - pay far exceeding the state's $7.25 minimum wage.
Mayor Bloomberg opposes the controversial union-backed measure, saying it will drive up economic development costs.
Quinn hasn't taken a position on the bill but, until recently, had not allowed it to get a hearing needed for the bill to move forward.
