Together we secured a great victory. But our fight - and our work - continues.
The Assembly Majority recognizes that the cost of basic necessities - food, clothing, housing, medical care, education, utilities and transportation - are going up all the time. That's why we are committed to ensuring that as the cost of these necessities increase, so should New York's minimum wage. A law that ties the minimum wage directly to inflation means working families can keep pace with the increasing cost of living. No family should have to choose between paying rent and putting food on the table.
Please show your support! Sign the petition encouraging legislators to link New York's minimum wage directly to the cost of living.
