Support the Fair Wages For New Yorkers Act
The Fair Wages for New Yorkers Act was introduced to City Council on May 25, 2010. It requires that developers who receive major taxpayer-funded subsidies must pay at least a living wage for the jobs they create.
The Food Policy Committee is drafting a letter of support on behalf of the Brooklyn Food Coalition, but we encourage you to send a message of support to your City Council Member. Go to Living Wage NYC’s webform to send your message.

One of the best ways to stay on top of the issue is to join Millions Against Monsanto.
