Event description

Description

Effective December 31, 2017, New York City employers with more than 10 employees and fast-food employers in New York City must increase their minimum wage to $13/hour and $13.50/hour, respectively. Neighborhood Trust and Commonwealth invite you to attend a convening of select New York City based business owners, CEOs and HR decision makers who will be impacted by the December 31, 2017 NYC minimum wage increase. By attending you will:

  • Gain access to the most recent research about employee financial insecurity and its impact on the workplace
  • Capitalize on this opportunity to build a stronger workforce by learning how others have used this to strengthen employee financial security
  • Contribute your expertise and views to the national conversation around the minimum wage increase and worker financial health
  • Collaborate with other business leaders

As a leader in the New York community, your attendance and input would be very valuable. We hope you'll join us and look forward to seeing you.
