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.
