Laborers from Locals all over New York City celebrated the 2015 Labor Day Parade. This year, the Labor Day Parade had added significance, as a push to increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour heats up.
"The current minimum wage of $8.75 an hour just doesn't work," said Governor Andrew Cuomo.
"If we're going to have a city of equality, it has to start with financial equality and we have to make sure that people can pay their rents, put food on the table for their kids," said State Comptroller Scott Stringer.
Thousands of workers, unionized or not, made their way up Fifth Avenue echoing those sentiments.
