Statement Regarding the Wage Boards Overtime Threshold for NY Farm Workers

“When our farmers feel like the deck is stacked against them, it’s because it is - and, if this decision is upheld it will be another devastating blow to upstate farmers.


Unlike my opponent, Josh Riley, I have spent my entire life in New York, and my entire career growing opportunity and delivering relief to local farmers. We cannot quietly accept policies that raise the cost of food for working-class families in New York while bringing the demise of family farms.


Governor Hochul should reject this proposal or more real New Yorkers, hard working employees and local farmers will be forced out of the State.”
