Make N.Y. Minimum Wage a Living WageBack >
November 22, 2015
N.Y. Governor Andrew Cuomo made a March 2015 stop in Buffalo to call for an increase in the state's minimum wage.
In case you missed it:
In a Nov. 22 opinion piece, essayists Fred Floss and Sam Magavern explained the wisdom of gradually increasing New York state's minimum wage to $15. Floss is chairman and a professor in the Department of Economics and Finance at SUNY Buffalo State, while Magavern is co-director of the Partnership for the Public Good and an Open Buffalo partner. With a reasoned, analytical approach, Floss and Magavern also debunked the common, regressive arguments against raising our state's wage floor.
