Does the OP honestly think four minimum wage jobs would pay for anything other than in the ghetto to live in NYC?

Minimum wage is already set by the state but must be equal or above the national minimum wage.
As for the OP there's 8.1 millon residents in NY city. If half make up the work force and the unemployment rate is 8.3% that would be over 330,000 people out of work. I don't think 1500 or twice that on CL would make a dent in that unemployment rate.
