People with developmental disabilities and their caretakers held a rally at the state Capitol Wednesday to ask Gov. Andrew Cuomo for financial help if he’s successful in pushing through a $15 minimum wage.
Providers to people with developmental disabilities say they want their employees to earn more money. Steve Kroll, with NYSARC, says many of its staffers earn less than $15 an hour right now.
“We support giving them pay hikes, because their work is incredibly important,” said Kroll.
