Statement from Borough President Diaz
RE: Gov. Cuomo’s Call for $15 Minimum Wage
“Governor Cuomo’s call for a statewide $15 minimum wage is a welcome one, and something I fully support. I have been a champion for higher wages throughout my career, having led the fight to pass the nation’s strongest living wage law, the ‘Fair Wages for New Yorkers Act,’ early in my time as borough president. Today’s announcement builds on those prior victories.
“A $15 minimum wage will help lift working New Yorkers and their families out of poverty and into the middle class, and I look forward to working with Governor Cuomo and my colleagues at every level of government to make this proposal a reality,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
