The Living Wage NYC Campaign says a majority of city council members in New York now support the Fair Wages For New Yorkers Act. It requires developers who get taxpayer-funded subsidies to pay at least ten dollars an hour. Workers not covered by a health insurance plan would get a dollar fifty more per hour. The Living Wage NYC Campaign says each year the city spends billions of tax dollars to subsidize development. The campaign says reaching this majority support on the city council for the Fair Wages For New Yorkers Act demonstrates that the council wants to make sure subsidies are used to create permanent living wage jobs.
