Residents Demand a True Living Wage

Residents from across the state convened at the Capitol in Albany for a rally aimed at pressuring lawmakers to raise the state’s minimum wage, expand unemployment benefits, and undertake other initiatives to make housing more affordable throughout New York. According to a study cited in the story, a New York State household must earn hourly wages of $23.21 in order to afford a two-bedroom apartment at fair-market rent without spending more than 30 percent of income on housing, while Westchesterites must earn at least $30.96 per hour.
