CUOMO PASSING BUCK ON MIN WAGE BUT $9 FED RATE and Indexing to Inflation Rate WOULD COST JOBS AND SINK NYS ECONOMY
The Kings County Conservative Party position is that the Federal Government cannot responsibly raise the minimum wage to $9.The increase will ultimately cost the New York State and New York City economies many jobs as businesses will lay off workers, hire less workers and decrease the hours worked. Small businesses and even larger businesses will be overburdened. There comes a point where expenses are tipped against enterprise. Governor Cuomo merely wants the Federal Government to impose the minimum wage, but surely what follows when the living wage proponents and other interest groups seek New York’s minimum to be even higher. If Cuomo wants to put his money where his mouth is, passing the buck is not good enough!
