Paul Sonn Discusses Minimum Wage for State Workers

Former Skadden fellow Paul Sonn ('94), general counsel of the National Employment Law Project, was quoted in a New York Times article about a plan announced by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo to establish a $15 hourly minimum wage for all state workers ("New York State Workers Laud Higher Minimum Pay," Nov. 15). Paul said Gov. Cuomo's plan would "create momentum for more governors to act" and could pressure President Obama to use executive power to create a $15 an hour minimum wage for employees of federal contractors.
