Help Us Let State Officials Know that NY State’s Min. Wage is Not Enough to Live On

At UncommonGoods, we pay all our workers, including people who are just here for the holiday season, well above the minimum hourly wage. That’s because NY State’s current minimum wage, $7.25/hr, is too little to live on.

I, along with 80% of NY State voters, feel strongly that all of NY State’s workers must be paid a fairer wage, asap. We’ve gone 6 years with zero increase. 19 other states have higher minimum wages than NY. If minimum wage had kept pace with inflation since 1970, it would be $11.15 an hour.<
