Some of the statics in the report are shocking: Four in ten households in New York City are forced to subsist on low-wages and over one-quarter of workers in New York City earn below $25,000 per year. But the report highlights what many of us have long-known: minimum wage is not enough to support a family in NYC. Across the city, families are forced to choose between rent, food, and healthcare. A family making minimum wage is forced to subsist below the federal poverty line. It is immoral for a city like NYC to deny a living wage to its working families.
