NEW YORK, Jan. 6 – Mayor Bill de Blasio spoke in front of hundreds at District Council 37 in lower Manhattan.
The event was a celebration for New York City public workers and contractors, whose hourly minimum wage will rise to $15 an hour before the end of 2018.
Mayor de Blasio and the city council have called for $15 in NYC wage but state law mandates the minimum wage of cities and towns to be set at the state level. The Republican-led state senate has blocked the desired increase.
