That will be at the Three Rivers Development at 19 East Market Street, Second Floor Conference Room) in Corning.
In a joint statement, O’Mara, Palmesano and Friend said, “The supporters of raising the state’s minimum wage by nearly 70 percent to $15 an hour have been out in full force all across New York State, and all over the airwaves. But the voices of New York’s hard-working farm families deserve to be heard also. It’s the other side of the story on this minimum wage debate, which is potentially a story about disappearing farms and farmland, job losses and other economic impacts across so many rural communities and Main Street New York. Our farmers and agricultural industry deserve to have a voice in this debate too.”
