Bill de Blasio on Jobs

 

 


Peg living wage to increases in the cost of living

When wages rise, workers spend more in their neighborhoods, and local businesses can then employ more people. Bill de Blasio is committed to using a broad range of policies to help raise wage standards so everyone is able to live and support a family in relative comfort and security.

The living wage law should be pegged to increases in the cost of living and cover any large for-profit company receiving $1 million in economic subsidies. Any businesses receiving city subsidies should provide clear plans on providing health care for all their workers. Bill de Blasio will create a "responsible contractor policy" requiring all contractors and economic subsidy recipients to disclose and explain past and pending violations of labor, employment, environmental and workplace safety violations, and bar repeat offenders from receiving public money
