We're Raising the Minimum Wage for All New Yorkers

Raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour statewide was a major priority of Governor Cuomo's 2016 Built to Lead Agenda. The Governor's plan takes the needs of workers and businesses alike into account.

On December 31, 2016, the first in a series of wage increases took place. The increases are calibrated by industry and by region in order to provide businesses ample time to adjust. Additional information is available for tipped, fast food and other workers not covered by the general wage.
