Living Wage NYC Responds to EDC Study

May 9, 2011

Living Wage NYC--a coalition of faith, labor, community and grassroots groups throughout New York City--released the following statement in response to NYCEDC's study, “The Economic Impacts on New York City of Proposed Living Wage Mandate”:

"We knew the findings of this rigged study long before it was released. That's because the Bloomberg administration has openly opposed living wage standards. This is the same administration whose failed economic development policies have resulted in higher rates of homelessness, higher rates of hunger and higher rates of long-term unemployment. The City Council has a responsibility to act on behalf of all New Yorkers to ensure that when taxpayer dollars are given to private developers the resulting jobs pay a living wage."
