New York Assembly to Pass Minimum Wage Increase

The New York State Assembly plans to pass a bill Tuesday (March 5) that will see minimum wage increase from $7.25 to $9 an hour. The passing of the bill will put pressure on Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has already proposed a minimum wage increase, to support the bill.

President Obama proposed that he wants the federal minimum wage at $9 per hour, and many state leaders have supported this motion. The minimum wage has not been increased since 2009.

“Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, D-Manhattan, said the minimum wage should be increased independent of federal action. The bill to be approved Tuesday would increase the minimum wage to $9 an hour in January 2014 and tie future raises to the rate of inflation.”
