Watch Melissa Debate Living Wage Policy at the CUNY Forum

Melissa participated in a discussion on living wage legislation at The CUNY Forum in September (the video was only recently uploaded on YouTube).  Moderated by CUNY-TV’s Bob Liff, the panel also included Jeff Eichler from the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU), Professor Fred Siegel from the Manhattan Institute and Professor Stephanie Luce from the Murphy Institute for Worker Education and Labor Studies at CUNY.

The discussion focuses on proposals introduced in the City Council to require that living and prevailing wages be paid in buildings receiving City economic development subsidies.
