Governor Andrew Cuomo announced an historic plan to empanel a Wage Board that will open the door to dramatically raising wages for tens of thousands of fast food workers across New York State.

This is not just about economic equality – it’s about women’s equality. More than 70% of fast food workers are women, and many of them single moms. If the New York Wage Board increases pay, it will be a huge victory for workers and women not only in New York state, but it will spur change across the country.

Our two and a half year movement for $15 and union rights has changed the politics of the country, and made $15 a baseline for what working people need to support themselves and their families.

Let’s make New York the first state in the nation with a $15 wage for fast food workers and change the lives of countless women and families.

Sign and tell the Wage Board it is time for New York to raise the wage to $15 and set the stage for the rest of the country to follow.

To the members of the New York Wage Board:

More than 70% of fast food workers nationwide are women – and many of them are moms. They can’t support their families on the poverty wages fast food pays. I call on the New York Wage Board to raise fast food wages in New York state to $15 so all fast food workers can pay their rent and feed their families. And to set an example for the rest of the country to follow.
