Low-wage employers testify

Ted Potrikus from the Retail Council of NYSN, Dan Murphy of the NYS Hospitality and Tourism Association and Eliot Shaw of the Business Council of NYS are testifying - a murderer's row of representatives of low-wage employers.

Potrikus quite graciously acknowledged substantive discussions with the WFP.

But Murphy is radically mischaracterizing the Fair Share bill, its scope and its effect. Apparently, he thinks that spending $150 a month on health insurance can buy decent benefits in New York. Maybe in 1971, but not today.
