Tell Cuomo: Tax the rich
There’s a campaign to pressure the state government to raise taxes on the wealthiest in order to fund CUNY, K-12 schools and vital public services.
The state’s 118 billionaires have seen a $77 billion increase to their personal wealth during the pandemic, while Main Street has experienced job cuts, business closings and service reductions. Unions like the PSC believe now is the time for the rich to pay their fair share. Governor Andrew Cuomo has said he’s willing to entertain the idea in 2021.
