Silly Developers & Their Wasteful Spending

The developer of the Buffalo harbor project, the Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation, just announced that they are hiring Syracuse advertising firm Eric Mower and Associates to a 3-year, $300,000 contract.

Our friends at the Canal Side Community Alliance say:

The Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation hired a PR firm today at a $125-$325 per hour cost to the public, but is refusing to agree to a community benefits agreement that would ensure workers at Canalside are paid a living wage of $11.05 with benefits or $12.40 without benefits. That ain’t right.
