New York State Clergy Sign-On Statement
“Do not oppress the hired laborer who is poor and needy whether he is one of your people or one of the sojourners in your land within your gates.” – Deuteronomy 24:14
Dear Governor Cuomo,
As faith leaders who represent communities throughout New York State, we write to express our strong support for raising New York’s outdated minimum wage. We urge you to do everything in your power to ensure that New York raises its minimum wage to at least $8.50 per hour this year, and indexes it to keep pace with inflation.
