Buffalo District Parent explains what it was like to attend event that makes history.

“The employees of our firm are constantly involved in the community whether it is by volunteering or attending events. This is a perfect example of the Mattar way.” -William K. Mattar

Kelly Hall, lien resolution/ paralegal at William Mattar attended the pro-minimum wage increase rally on Wednesday, November 18, 2015 at Buffalo’s Belle Center. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Senator Kennedy, Assemblyman Ryan and Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown spoke at the rally.

Hall explains the rally as “intense” and “interesting to watch”. She goes on to say “It was amazing to see the Buffalo community join together and get involved in something that will affect all of us one way or another.” Mayor Byron Brown announced at the meeting that by the year 2021, he will also work to raise all minimum wage city workers’ hourly rate to $15 an hour, as this is also the concept for all fast food workers. This is Brown’s way of showing support of this rate increase in his own city. “The crowd was extremely enthusiastic of the Mayor’s decision and really showed their full support.”
