At The Rally!
The atmosphere here is positive and energized outside Governor Cumo’s NYC office on Third Ave as S:US joins other agencies to advocate for Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) to receive an increase in wages to $15 per hour!
S:US supports the Governor’s proposal to raise minimum wage to $15 an hour in NYS – but there is NO MONEY IN HIS PROPOSED BUDGET to pay for it!
We need additional funding to pay workers the increased wages and to raise lower paid staff salaries so they don’t lose ground when the minimum is raised.
