Minimum Wage Campaign Intensifies

The campaign to raise New York State’s minimum wage intensified last week. Governor Cuomo is hard at work on the issue, declaring, in his recent State of the State address, his strong support for a raise. CPD is working hard, with key allies, to coordinate the campaign to raise New York’s minimum wage to $8.75 and to index it to keep up with inflation.

Over 300 workers, advocates and members of the clergy marched on the state Capitol in Albany last Tuesday to deliver a petition of 30,000 signatures.
