Statement in Response to Governor Cuomo’s Minimum Wage Rally

Posted: Jan 4th, 2016

“The reality is that Upstate New York simply can’t afford a $15 minimum wage. The small businesses and farms that power our economy will be devastated, jobs will be lost, consumer costs will skyrocket and taxes will rise. If you truly support the Upstate economy, then you can't support this unprecedented wage mandate.

Unshackle Upstate and our partners in the Minimum Wage Reality Check campaign are committed to raising awareness about the real consequences of an unprecedented 67% minimum wage hike. The worried voices of small business owners, family farmers and taxpayers will not be ignored.”
