On Friday, Jan. 11 at 10 a.m., PPG will join Senator Tim Kennedy and Assemblywoman Crystal Peoples-Stokes along with community activists, faith-based leaders and local residents at a rally at the Gloria J. Parks Community Center to urge Albany to finally take action on legislation to boost the minimum wage.
Read PPG’s policy brief on why Western New York Will Gain from a Higher Minimum Wage.
Raising the minimum wage is a plank on the 2013 Community Agenda.
To improve the state’s economy and bring raises to 1 million low paid workers, New York State should pass Assembly Bill 9148 to raise the state’s minimum wage from $7.25 per hour to $8.50 per hour and index it to inflation.
The Gloria J. Parks Community Center is located at 3242 Main Street in Buffalo.
