Minimum wage rises to $10.40 an hour on path toward $15

As part of Gov. Cuomo's legislation minimum-wage workers will see a pay raise while the new paid family leave program starts

A new year brings a new minimum wage in New York State.

"The increase in the minimum wage will mean a boost for our lowest paid people in society in 2018".

ME is one of 18 states, including three in New England, raising wages in January. She's "100 percent supportive" of a $15 minimum wage.

The federal minimum wage has not increased since 2009 and the purchasing power of the minimum wage has steadily declined for decades.

It was announced back in October 2017's Budget that the Irish minimum wage would be increased, with the new sum to be tallied in 2018.

The fast food restaurants required to pay the minimum wage are also defined by the agency.

Four found dead in basement apartment in Troy, NY
There remained a heavy police presence outside the apartment building Wednesday as authorities continued to investigate. The two women were in a relationship, Tedesco said, and the children belonged to one of the women, the chief said.

The liberal-leaning Cleveland think tank estimates another 478,000 workers who earn a little more than minimum wage will likely get a bump in pay because employers will adjust their pay scales to reflect the higher state rate.

Todd Tranum, the Chautauqua County Chamber of Commerce President, expressed his concerns as well.

"We see the $12 an hour as being a pathway to economic justice", says Farris.

"The minimum wage increase, new paid family leave requirements and the state's proposed employee scheduling regulations are concerning to employers in the area", he said.

The new minimum wage would result in an Irish worker taking home a gross income of €1,613.95 per month, and €1,521.57 after tax. The new employee scheduling regulations that are now in a public comment period, adds additional costs, paperwork and scheduling challenges to the backs of employers.
