Tell City Hall that when our public dollars subsidize private development, we deserve something in return: good jobs, good wages, good benefits.

The Fair Wages for New Yorkers Act will:
• Guarantee that workers in large development projects receiving public subsidies are paid at least the New York City Living Wage of $10 an hour.
• Index the Living Wage to inflation so that it keeps pace with the cost of living.
• Require that employees who do not receive health insurance from their employer receive an additional $1.50 per hour wage supplement to help them purchase their own health insurance.
• Apply the living wage guarantee to all workers at a subsidized development project, regardless of whether they are employed directly by the developer or by the project’s tenants or on-site service contractors.
