New York Communities for Change is specifically targeting Councilman Lew Fidler’s vote as they push for the City Council to pass the Living Wage Bill.

Specifically noting that Fidler plans to run for State Senate in their press release, the group has been gathering pro-Living Wage postcards from Fidler’s constituents:

Community Members to CM Fidler: We want a Living Wage

Members of New York Communities for Change deliver 1,300 postcards in support of Living Wage Bill

New York Communities for Change members will show their support for the Fair Wages for New Yorkers Act in front of Council Member Lewis Fiddler’s district office Thursday at 12:30pm. Often referred to as the Living Wage Bill, the Fair Wages for New Yorkers Act requires any company receiving large tax breaks from the city to pay a Living Wage ($10/hour with benefits or $11.50 without benefits).

Fidler, who has plans to run for the state Senate next election cycle, has not taken a position on the bill despite its popularity with voters across the city and in his district especially.
