The Laundry Workers Center joined The New York State Minimum Wage Coalition is the spring of 2013. This coalition is a collection of labor, community, policy, and religious groups that push Albany to raise the minimum wage.
We are currently celebrating the coalition's recent victory of getting the New York state legislature to raise the state’s minimum wage from $7.25 per hour to $9.00 per hour over the next three years! Read more
Participation in this campaign marks the first major policy victory for our organization. Laundry Worker’s Center is committed to working for further policy changes that directly impact the lives of our members.
