Senator Dilan recently joined Democratic Conference Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, New York Communities for Change and hundreds of workers in the Capitol in support of Senate Democratic Conference efforts to #RaiseTheWage to $10.10.

The increased minimum wage would be tied to the consumer price index and give localities the ability to adjust wages by as much as 30 percent, for regional markets.

A New York City Comptroller report confirmed that an increased hourly rate of $13.13 would benefit 376,000 people in Brooklyn and generate an additional $39 million a week that would be reinvested locally.
