While not an ideal bill, the Living Wage NYC coalition supports the living wage legislation, now being introduced by Speaker Quinn, and urges City Council Members to pass it. This bill is an important and meaningful step in achieving living wage jobs for all low-wage workers. We will hold the Speaker and the Council accountable to make sure that the final language of the bill moves the goals of our coalition forward. We will keep fighting, and we will not stop until all New Yorkers earn a living wage.
