The New Year will once again bring on a raise for workers all across the state.
Effective today, the next wave of minimum wage increases will go into effect across New York.
In New York City Big Employers will start paying their minimum wage workers $15 an hour while small employers will pay $13.50 an hour.
Long Island and Westchester will see a bump to $12 an hour.
The Greater Binghamton area and the rest of the state’s minimum wage workers will see their hourly pay rate rise to $11.10.
That $11.10 figure will jump by $.70 each year until it reaches $15 an hour, which is the rate Governor Cuomo has the whole state scheduled to reach.
