Raise the minimum wage to match the living wage in New York.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


The inadequate minimum wage in New York City, and New York State, should be a pressing concern for the Governor, and the Mayor. In NY, a single adult needs up to earn $17 per hour, but the highest the State is willing to go is $15. A much more striking difference is the minimum wage, and the living wage, gap for a single parent (with one child). They need to earn $30 per hour, but, by the end of 2018, will have barely half of that. If enough people sign on, we could bring a change to the current laws, and raise the minimum wage, or at the very least, start an important conversation that is long overdue.

Look at the statistics, and decide for yourself:
