Original air date: 7/19/2011 The Living Wage Bill: If a corporation or developer benefits from certain tax subsidies from the city, should it have to pay its employees $10 or more per hour so they can have a realistic shot at a decent life? Yes, say proponents of the “Fair Wages for New Yorkers Act,” currently before the NY City Council. No, say opponents: the so-called “Living Wage Bill” will just stifle economic growth and scare off businesses which might consider becoming tenants in a new development. Joining Host Randy Peers for a provocative debate are Brooklyn Council Member Brad Lander… Tim King, Managing Partner at CPEX and a longtime commercial real estate leader in the borough…and the Rev. Robert Waterman, Pastor of Antioch Baptist Church. From Brooklyn Independent Television's Sector B. http://www.bricartsmedia.org/bit
