Albany, NY) Yesterday, the State Assembly followed the Senate in passing the Wage Theft Prevention Act (WTPA). This historic legislation will protect thousands of hard-working men and women from unscrupulous employers who steal their earnings by paying less than minimum wage, misclassifying them as independent contractors, or by forcing them to work off the clock, among other underhanded schemes.
Brooklyn, NY – Senator Kevin Parker (D-Brooklyn) called upon Commissioner David Steiner of the New York State Education Department (NYSED) to deny Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Cathie Black's request for her to receive a waiver, allowing her to serve as the Chancellor of New York City's Schools despite lacking professional experience in education.
(Albany, New York) On November 11, we celebrate Veteran’s Day, a day for us to pay tribute to those who have fought to protect our country. This year, Governor David Paterson signed my legislation, which will take effect on Veterans’ Day 2010. This law will allow for the respectful disposition of the unidentified cremated remains (cremains) of veterans.
State Senator Kevin Parker would like to wishes L'shannah Tovah to his friends in the Jewish Community. The Boro Park community is a valued part of my constituent base. I Thank you for all your support over the last 8 years and look forward to working with you in years to come. I hope this year is filled with love, hope and prosperity.”
