Cuomo scrambles labor gains in NYC

Mayor Bill de Blasio and the New York City Council recently passed the #FairWorkweek and Fast Food Worker Empowerment bills fought for by Fastfood Forward and the Fight for $15 and a Union movement. Meanwhile, Cuomo is working on statewide legislation that could create confusion within the labor movement by expanding some parts of the legislation, while undercutting larger parts of the #FairWorkweek package. The implementation of different standards in different parts of the state also threatens to weaken and divide the labor movement in New York.
