At a time when far too many working people struggle to survive, members of a growing citywide movement will demand living wage jobs for all New Yorkers at a public City Council hearing. Elected officials, community members, faith and labor leaders from the Living Wage NYC coalition will demand passage of the Fair Wages for New Yorkers Act, popular legislation supported by a majority of City Council that will ensure taxpayer subsidies create more living wage jobs. Bloomberg’s biased and rigged anti-living wage study will also be challenged.
Who: City Council Members Brad Lander, Letitia James, Jumaane Williams, Margaret Chin, Melissa Mark-Viverito, Stephen Levin (list in formation); faith leaders, labor and community leaders; and hundreds of city residents.
When/Where: Thursday, May 12, 2011
11:00 a.m. – Rally for living wages (press conference at NOON), Broadway between Park Place and Murray Street (across from 250 Broadway)
1:00 p.m. – Hearing on the Fair Wages for New Yorkers Act, 250 Broadway, 16th Floor
