Brooklyn Conservatives Urge NYC Councilmembers Vote NO on Intro 251-A: job-killing”living wage” bill
The Kings County Conservative Party is urging City Council members to vote against the so-called “living wage” bill before the council tomorrow. Establishing minimums for businesses performing functions with New York City, which exceed Federal and State minimum wage requirements would add additional burdens upon an already over-regulated and unfriendly business environment. The living wage bill would actually harm the work-force causing layoffs as businesses are forced to make cuts or simply abandon New York in favor of less restrictive and freer markets in other cities and States. The cost of buying homes and taking unwanted housing stock off the market will increase. It does not take a million dollar study to inform anyone of the negative effects of this legislation.
