State Sen. Adriano Espaillat (Jon Lentz)
Senate Democrats released a 20-page report today on a proposed minimum wage hike, calling on Republican Senators to vote on the increase from $7.25 an hour to $8.50 in a special session.
In a release accompanying the report, bill sponsor State Sen. Adriano Espaillat writes,
“This report underscores just how critical it is to raise New York’s minimum wage. Every day the Republicans block passage of the minimum wage is another missed opportunity to lift millions of New Yorkers out of poverty and get our economy moving again,” Senator Adriano Espaillat said. “As the sponsor of legislation (S.6335-B) to raise New York’s minimum wage, I urge my colleagues to return to the legislature immediately and vote on raising the minimum wage.”
