Board To Look Into Minimum Wage Increase For Fast Food Workers

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced today that a tentative schedule has been set for the appointed Wage Board to look into making recommendations for a minimum wage increase for fast food workers. Cuomo said, “We must raise the minimum wage to restore that promise of opportunity and help people across the state move beyond poverty. With this Wage Board, New York is stepping up for fast food workers, and we are going to challenge every state in the nation to follow our lead in doing what is right and what is fair.” Tentatively, the state Wage Board will hold four public meetings, all in the month of June to begin in Buffalo on June 5, New York City on the 8th, Long Island on the 15th, and Albany on the 22nd. Those who cannot attend are encouraged to write in a testimony via postal mail or email them to wageboard@labor.ny.gov by the June 26 deadline. The Wage Board will finalize the hearing schedule at a public meeting in New York City, though no public comment will be heard at this meeting.
