Ending the Extractive Economy by Raising the Minimum Wage in NYS
We will work with a broad coalition of statewide partners to push the minimum wage up to $15 an hour for everyone not just for fast food workers. In this work we will grow more low wage leaders who can take on this fight themselves by engaging them in leadership training, and training them to be spokespeople in front of the media.
