Our fight for higher wages is heating up!
A bus will be picking up local residents on Tuesday, June 17 at 10 a.m. to attend the Albany Rally to raise the minimum wage. The bus will be stopping at the parking lot at the North Utica Shopping Center (50 Auert Ave, Utica, NY 13502, off Herkimer Road near Berkshire Bank). There is no charge for the bus. Lunch will be provided. Please arrive 15 minutes earlier.
Cities across the country are taking action to raise wages for low-wage workers — with Seattle recently passing a $15/hour minimum wage. And now, thanks to the work of unions, community groups, faith leaders and the Working Families Party, the governor is standing with workers in support of a $10.10/hour statewide minimum wage in NY and the right for localities to raise the wage even higher.
Now is the time to RaiseUpNY! This is our moment — join us at the State Capitol on Tuesday, June 17 to pressure legislators to take action now!
