Minimum Wage Hike In New York Not Likely To Happen This Year

From Flickr user Images Of Money

Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York knows that those making minimum wage would love to get a raise, but according to him if it is going to happen this year then it will be up their employers to actually give them a raise. It won’t be by passing a law this year. Governor Cuomo said at this stage of the game it would be hard to get the legislation through on time in the legislature. Minimum wage in New York is currently $7.25 and lawmakers were trying to push through a jump to $8.50. More than likely it will come back next year but for now, if you make minimum and want a raise you’ll just have to ask your boss for it and cross your fingers.
