the living wage bill, passed by nyc city council on april 30, 2012, would have obligated any private development project directly accepting $1 million or more in taxpayer subsidies to pay employees a living wage of $10/hour with supplemental health benefits or $11.50/hour without benefits.
bloomberg vetoed the bill on may 31, 2012.
city council overrides bloomberg’s veto on june 29, 2012.
on july 27, 2012 bloomberg sues city council to block living wage bill.
and the saga continues.
