Minimum Wage Litmus Test for NYS Primary
- New York 08/30/2014 by Linda Perry (WBAI)

City Hall, August 28, 2014

Will Candidates stand with the working class? Will they pledge to raise the minimum wage? This is at issue as the New York State Primary approaches. 

Raise Up NY, a coalition of community groups, labor, elected officials and candidates running for office rallied on the steps of City Hall Thursday. They united in the struggle for a livable wage in New York City and New York State and in an effort  to make sure candidates elected support an immediate wage increase to $10.10 and then to $15.00 an hour.
