Hundreds Rally For Higher Wages On Anniversary Of King's Death



"NEW YORK -- Hundreds of New Yorkers rallied on the 43rd anniversary
of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination Monday night, calling for the
passage of legislation aimed at raising wages for most workers at
developments receiving public subsidies.

A group of more than 250 interfaith leaders, politicians, labor
organizers and community members filled the Bethel Baptist Church in
Brooklyn, while another 400 met at the Bronx Pentecostal Deliverance
Center, to advocate for the Fair Wages for New Yorkers Act. The bill
would mandate a $10 hourly wage -- or $11.50 without benefits -- at
large, publicly-funded developments. Pay increases for workers at those
sites would be tied to inflation to ensure their "living wage" status."
