The $1 million city-commissioned study that found that living wage legislation (which would require employers in commercial developments receiving public subsidies to pay workers $10 with benefits and $11.50 without) would result in the loss of 13,000 city jobs focused on a real estate program that's not even covered by the bill, City Limits reports.

The legislation grew out of the local battle that killed the mayor's plans to turn the Kingsbridge Armory into a shopping mall.
