Statement by Vincent Alvarez on Governor Cuomo's $15/hour Minimum Wage Proposal

"As the cost of living in New York City continues to increase, it is imperative that all workers receive the middle class wages that will allow them to pay for housing, care for families, and invest in their local communities," said Vincent Alvarez, President of the New York City Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO. "We applaud the Governor for taking this action.  The New York City Labor Movement will continue to stand up to ensure that our government creates an economy that works for all, and that all of New York City's workers receive the wages they so desperately need and deserve."
