HARLEM—While working for minimum wage at a Target in Queens, Tashawna Green said she often had to make tough choices.
"There were times when I had to decide between paying the rent or buying food," Green, a mother of one, said Monday during a state Assembly hearing on increasing the minimum wage.
"We had to depend on public assistance to make ends meet...because what I got from my employer couldn't pay everything," she said of herself and some of her co-workers.
