LIU'S THINKING OF FAST FOOD WORKERS

LIU STATEMENT IN HONOR OF LABOR DAY

In honor of Labor Day 2013, New York City Comptroller John C. Liu issued the following statement:

"As we approach this coming Labor Day, we cannot help but think about the City’s fast-food workers, who took part in a national strike on Thursday, and others who work full time at difficult jobs and don’t make enough to support their families. As Franklin Delano Roosevelt so aptly said: ‘No business which depends for existence on paying less than living wages to its workers has any right to continue in this country. By living wages I mean more than a bare subsistence level – I mean the wages of a decent living.’

"Labor Day will truly be a reason to celebrate when every worker who wants a job can find one and every worker makes a ‘living wage.’ We reiterate our call to raise the minimum wage to $11.50 an hour in New York City."
