Rochester Auto Show is Underway

About 200 cars are parked inside the Rochester Riverside Convention Center through Sunday as gearheads take a look at the latest models.
Up to 80-thousand people are expected to attend the four-day event.
New York Residents Fight Hunger
A new report finds many New Yorkers are struggling to put food on the table.
The study from the Food Research and Action Center found nearly 18 percent of Empire State residents reported not having enough money to buy food that they or their family needed in the past year. The center says Congress needs to do more to help boost jobs and wages not only in New York State, but around the country.
More Groups Push for Minimum Wage Hike
Another group is pushing for a minimum wage hike in New York State.
The United Food and Commercial Workers Union is pushing the five-member Independent Democratic Conference to join with Senate Democrats and vote to increase the state's minimum wage to 9-dollars an hour. The group says such a move will help lift hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers from the poverty level.
