Tell New York Gov. Kathy Hochul: Raise the minimum wage to $20

It took 6 years of rallying and organizing for New Yorkers to win a $15 minimum wage. But now, four years later, that minimum wage buys 15% less than it did when the $15 minimum wage was enacted.

That’s why State Senator Jessica Ramos is reintroducing the Raise the Wage Act in the New York State Legislature to raise the minimum wage to $20 an hour by 2026 in New York State and $21.25 in the city and surrounding suburbs.

81% of likely voters in NY State support raising the minimum wage, according to polling data by Data for Progress. And it’s not just working people; it’s businesses too.

Maura Keaney is First VP at Amalgamated Bank, which has already raised its minimum wage to $20/hr. She said, “When people are doing well, we believe businesses do well.”

And, Charles Khan, Organizing Director at Strong Economy for All said that “since the Fight for $15, there’s been $150 billion in additional wages that have gone to working people across the country.”

Add your name today to call on New York Governor Kathy Hochul to get on board with a $20 minimum wage by 2026.
