"Asked about the city’s "living wage" legislation during his regular Friday morning radio appearance on WOR, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said, "The last time we really had a big managed economy was the USSR."
On Wednesday night, City Council speaker Christine Quinn announced that negotiations were finally complete on a living wage bill that would require some recipients of large economic development subsidies to pay their employees at least $10 an hour.
Quinn calls it "the most impactful living-wage law in the United States," but experts say it will actually impact about 500 workers a year.
Even so, today, Bloomberg compared the legislation to communism and said he would veto the bill and if the veto is overridden, his administration will file a lawsuit.
"It’s interesting if you think about it," said the mayor. "The last time we really had a big managed economy was the USSR and that didn’t work out so well."
"It would be great if all jobs in the city paid a lot of money and had great benefits for the workers. Not good for the employers. But if you force that you will just drive businesses out of the city.”"
