Minimum Wage Increase Takes Effect In New York New Year’s Eve
New York will bring in the the New Year by offering workers some more money, with the increase of minimum wage on Dec. 31st.
The minimum wage will increase from $8.00 an hour to $8.75 an hour. This is the second in a series of increases which started Dec. 31, 2013, when it was initially raised to $8.
The next increase will occur on Dec. 31, 2015, when it will be raised to $9.00 an hour.
Any increase will help out minimum wage workers. To review the minimum wage laws and regulations, you can visit labor.ny.gov.
Do you feel that this is a fair increase? Or do you feel that it will still be difficult for minimum wage workers to make ends meet?
