Poll: Majority of New York Voters Support Living Wage

December 14, 2011

The latest Quinnipiac Poll shows that 74 percent of all NYC voters approve a living wage, saying "it is the government's responsibility to make sure workers are paid a decent wage." According to Quinnipiac, support is 56 - 39 percent among Republicans, 83 - 11 percent among Democrats and 67 - 25 percent among independent voters.

"True to its image as a liberal town, New York gives big support to the City Council plan to require a "Living Wage" by companies that do business with the city. Does the government have an obligation to mandate a living wage? Overwhelmingly, voters say yes," said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
