The Future of the Living Wage Movement
January 23, 2012
We want to thank you, the diverse coalition representing thousands of New Yorkers, for helping to build a historic movement for living wage jobs. What you helped us achieve will fundamentally improve the way New York City handles economic development and job creation in the future. This victory is something we will build on in the weeks, months, and years to come. You changed the conversation about economic fairness and justice, and created a climate in which further campaigns can succeed and strengthen working people.
