As I have repeatedly said, I am unequivocally in support of the principles behind the Living Wage bill but remain concerned about its actual effect in practical reality. For that reason and because I know this bill has changed by amendment and will likely continue to evolve by amendment, I have not yet taken a position on it. The fact of the matter is that I supported the principle by voting with my Bronx colleagues on the Kingsbridge Armory matter. The reality is, however, that the Armory remains empty today and not a single job has been created there. That is what troubles me. I am not sure that it is my right to tell someone who is otherwise unemployed that a job that might have existed is not 'good enough' for them. I will maintain an open mind on this bill until we get a final draft presented for an actual vote. I truly hope we can come to a bill that will effect the principle without costing us actual real world jobs. I am always happy to hear from my constituents and promise I will respond to each post card, that I am told will be delivered today, from an actual constituent and will do so promptly. However, I hope it is clear from my public record that I can never be bullied to vote for or against a piece of important legislation and I do not make critical economic policy decisions by sticking my finger in the air and checking the direction of the wind.
