The Buffalo Living Wage Ordinance
MetadataShow full item record
Guza, Joseph L.
Buffalo’s Living Wage Ordinance (LWO) provides that certain workers must be paid a living wage. The goal of the LWO is to make sure that employees working for the City of Buffalo and its contractors earn enough to keep their families out of poverty. Buffalo’s LWO was passed unanimously in 1995 but was not implemented until 2002. The LWO was amended in 2002 and 2007.
