Councilman Wilson Goode Jr. introduced the bill and had this to say:
America needs jobs. Good jobs. Family-sustaining jobs. Jobs with good wages and benefits. That’s the American Dream. The message is about economic justice, which means that a person who works 40 hours a week, 52 weeks a year, should be able to live with dignity, fair wages and benefits, especially if the job is supported by taxpayer dollars.Go Philly!
