Statement in Response to Proposed New York City Minimum Wage Increase



“The Business Council does not support mandated minimum wage increases at this time as they generally do not help the people they are intended to help. Small businesses, in particular, are already saddled with high unemployment taxes and other state-imposed mandates that, when faced with higher wage mandates on top of it all, force them to make tough decisions that often time result in staff reductions.”
