ACT NOW - Easy Ways to Contact Lawmakers about $15/hr. Minimum Wage

Date: March 17, 2016

The survival of small business depends on YOU!

NFIB/NY and a coalition of nearly 30 pro-business groups joined together on Small Business Day to make sure that Governor Cuomo and the New York State Legislature know small business is the backbone of the state’s economy. Join our efforts to protect small business and jobs in New York State! 

Use email and Twitter to contact lawmakers

On Small Business Day, Tuesday, March 8, NFIB/NY and its partners met with lawmakers to discuss policies that directly impact small business including minimum wage and a paid leave mandate.

Contact your lawmakers using email and Twitter to help spread the message! Ask lawmakers to vote NO on $15/hr. and a paid leave mandate. 

Email

– Send a pre-written letter to lawmakers
        OPPOSE a $15/hr. Minimum Wage
        OPPOSE a Paid Leave Mandate
        OPPOSE a Costly Bail-Out for Failed Health Insurance Plans

– Urge at least one other business, family member or support of small business to use this link to send a pre-written letter to lawmakers
