Raising the Minimum Wage

New York's minimum wage is going up! Thousands of New Yorkers raised their voices and helped the Assembly lead the fight to ensure that hardworking families who earn minimum wage get a raise this year and our effort succeeded. The minimum wage will rise in three stages from $7.25 to $9.00 per hour beginning this December 31.

Together we secured a great victory. But our fight - and our work - continues.

The Assembly Majority recognizes that the cost of basic necessities - food, clothing, housing, medical care, education, utilities and transportation - are going up all the time. That's why we are committed to ensuring that as the cost of these necessities increase, so should New York's minimum wage. A law that ties the minimum wage directly to inflation means working families can keep pace with the increasing cost of living. No family should have to choose between paying rent and putting food on the table.

Please show your support! Sign the petition encouraging legislators to link New York's minimum wage directly to the cost of living.
