NYS Restaurant Statement on NYC Wage Board Hearing
NEW YORK CITY — “As if we need any more proof that Governor Cuomo’s fast food wage board is a foregone conclusion, much of today’s hearing had only one of the three board members in attendance," said Melissa Fleischut, President and CEO of the NYS Restaurant Association. “None of the Governor’s handpicked wage board members have meaningful experience in the restaurant industry and all support increasing the minimum wage. It's clear the restaurant industry does not have a voice at the table when making this decision."
