... BUSINESSES FOR MINIMUM WAGE: A new coalition of hundreds of businesses and business organizations on Tuesday said it would push for raising the minimum wage and indexing further increases to inflation.
The group New York Business for a Fair Minimum Wage said of supporting a bill in the Legislature, called the Raise the Wage Act: “When people earn more as workers, they can afford to spend more as customers. Minimum wage increases go right back into the economy as spending at local businesses.”
