NAACP Announces Support for Living Wage in NYC

November 1, 2011

NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous has announced support for Living Wage NYC. He said this campaign for economic justice shows that living wage jobs are a national civil rights issue.

“New York City is the nation’s greatest city and also has the greatest level of income inequality,” Jealous told the New York Daily News.

He will be the keynote speaker at a historic November 21st rally at Riverside Church to support the living wage bill. The rally will happen just hours before a November 22nd New York City Council hearing on the Fair Wages for New Yorkers Act.
