New York City Faith Community Feels Called To Fight For Living Wage For Workers- 08/04/10
By Doug Cunningham
A majority of New York’s city council members back a bill that requires developers who get public tax subsides to pay at least $10 an hour for the permanent jobs created. The Micah Institute’s Edison Bond is part of the labor, faith and community coalition supporting the Living Wage.
[Bond]: “In the faith community we are called to address the poor, we are called to address poverty. It is important that our people in the city of New York make a fair wage.”
