  • #Minwage Protest at Skelos-Crain's Breakfast
  • When:

  • 7:30 AM
  • Where:

Senate Co-President Dean Skelos is dragging his heels on raising the minimum wage.  Workers, organizers & advocates will leaflet outside the Crain’s Business Breakfast Forum on Central Park South February 6.  Who supports raising the wage?  80% of New Yorkers, 70% of Republicans, Governor Cuomo, Speaker Silver, Senate Co-President Klein, hundreds of New York businesses, over 33,000 New Yorkers, and the Economist, Bloomberg News and Crain’s NY Business itself. 

Join us Wednesday morning to tell Skelos it’s time to raise the wage and index it to inflation, so New York can make real progress towards economic fairness and a strong economy for all.
