Changing times

The New Year is ringing in two landmark changes at the state level. The first is an increase in the minimum wage for thousands of workers. The second is the launch statewide of a medical marijuana program.

Although each program may not touch many of us directly, at least not yet, together they will have far-reaching economic and social impacts on the quality of life for many New Yorkers. What’s more, a Katonah family is a major player in one of these historic shifts.

Both make good sense for a number of reasons, in our opinion, and represent welcome shifts in public policy. So, before we put away our noisemakers, let’s toot those party horns one more time, or in this case, twice.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has consistently fought to increase the minimum wage in New York state. He used a state wage board to increase hourly pay to $15 for fast-food workers last summer, and unveiled a similar plan for an estimated 10,000 state workers in November. This past week, he announced a plan to enact a $15 minimum wage for state university workers, a group estimated at 28,000, according to numbers from the governor’s office. To date, no other state has enacted a $15 public sector minimum wage.

Edward Del Guercio, owner of Lift 23, sells a lot of socks and gives them away, too.

An avid skier, he had always searched for the perfect sock. After failing to find one, he decided to try developing one himself and worked on prototypes for over five years.

The social mission aspect of the business equation developed while Mr. Del Guercio was living in New York City several years ago.
