NY Archdiocese Joins Wage Rally

Monsignor Kevin Sullivan, of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York, attended a rally yesterday in support of higher wages. Sullivan read a letter from Archbishop Timothy Dolan that said, in part, "The church supports fair wages with decent benefits and jobs in sufficient numbers, so that all might find work." The archdiocese has not come out in support of any specific legislative proposal, but as the article linked to above indicates, non-Catholics from the unions and from the NAACP grasped the significance of the Church's support for their goals.

Let's hope the White House is as astute as the unions and the NAACP.
