Minimum Wage Hike|for NY Public Sector

ALBANY, N.Y. - New York on Tuesday became the first state to enact a $15 minimum wage for state workers, on the heels of a wage increase for fast-food workers.

"When fully phased in on July 1, 2021, this wage increase has an annual projected cost of roughly $20.6 million, including the anticipated effect of fringe benefits," according to a statement from Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office.

The increase will take effect on the same schedule as Cuomo's proposal for statewide, all-industry $15 minimum wage.
