A Living Wage in New York City

 

Mayor Bill DeBlasio has signed an order that increases the minimum wage of some workers from 11.90 to 13.13. This order applies to companies that work with the city, not all workers in the city. Laura Clawson of Daily Kos sees the move as a way to put pressure on state government to increase the minimum wage throughout the state. She quotes Governor Cuomo who said that a state-based increase leads to “a chaotic situation.” Mayor DeBlasio is leading. Hopefully the governor will follow.
