NYC Progressive Caucus
The Fair Wages for New Yorker Act would create a wage standard for jobs created throughtaxpayer-provided economic development subsidies, giving more New Yorkers access to higher- wage jobs. The legislation can be connected to the administration’s anti -poverty efforts. We should all be able to agree on the need to invest in economic opportunities that strengthen and empower working people, their families, and their communities in this city. This study offers a fresh framework for dialogue on the role of government and public resources in addressingpoverty and maintaining an equitable and balanced economy. We encourage the mayor and histeam to stand with us and support fair wages for all New Yorkers.
