From Jeff Furman, longtime Ithaca resident and longtime activist on the issue of a Living Wage for all:
“The Tompkins County Workers’ Center is a nationally recognized leader in advancing the rights and dignity of working people. Many area workers earn a living wage due to its efforts, making our community stronger. Now the center is looking to establish that wage for all workers in Tompkins County, a bold idea that is springing up across the country.
As an area resident I am proud to be a long-time supporter of the Center. As it enters the final days of its annual fundraising campaign I hope you will join with me and many others in making a contribution to the Tompkins County Workers’ Center so it may continue its vital work.”
