Sign the Petition - Stop Discrimination Against the State of Israel

Please sign my petition against the American Studies Association's targeted, discriminatory boycott of Israel by clicking here.

In December, the American Studies Association, a prominent organization that includes some of the most respected colleges and universities across the United States, took the unprecedented step of boycotting all Israeli academic institutions and scholars from its events and conferences.

Despite calls by numerous college presidents--including those at Harvard and Yale universities--for the ASA to end the boycott against Israel, the ASA's discriminatory policy remains firmly in place. That's unacceptable.

Independent Democratic Conference Minimum Wage Report 2013

Introduction

New York’s minimum wage is currently $7.25 an hour, which equals the federal minimum wage. The neighboring states of Connecticut, Vermont, and Massachusetts all have higher minimum wages than New York currently.  A person working 40 hours a week for 52 straight weeks would earn $15,080 a year, and many workers making the minimum wage aren’t scheduled to work that many hours in a week or work that many weeks, meaning that they likely make less than $15,000 a year. Given the high cost of living, especially in New York City and surrounding counties, making just $15,000 a year, even for a single person without dependents, means having barely enough to provide basic needs or afford one’s rent.

The IDC today released a comprehensive new report on the New York State Pension System. Each year, our pension system pays hundreds of millions of dollars in fees to Wall Street money firms that manage the system’s investment portfolio.
