Statement on Governor Cuomo’s State of the State – It’s Right to Raise the Wage!

“Governor Cuomo’s strong statement on the importance of raising the minimum wage, his strong leadership to put New York’s wage near the top of the nation, and his clear commitment to raise the wage to $8.75 per hour are exactly what our economy needs now.

The Legislature should move forward to write this increase into law, with indexing to allow future increases that will match inflation. Together, Governor Cuomo and the Legislature can leave a legacy of economic fairness that will broaden prosperity and make our state’s economy stronger.”

— Statement of Michael Kink, Executive Director, Strong Economy For All Coalition
