Job Gap in New York City

The living wage for a single adult is $19.90 per hour. This reflects what is needed to meet basic needs and maintain some ability to deal with emergencies and plan ahead. The living wage for a single adult with two children is $38.13 per hour.

New York’s minimum wage of $8.75 does not allow working families to make ends meet. The state’s minimum wage provides only 44 percent of a living wage for a single adult and less than a quarter of the living wage for a single adult with two children.
The Alliance for a Just Society has written Pay Up!, a research report that details the situation for working families in New York and across the country. This presentation is for press, organizers and activists.
