The State Budget deal includes a raise of minimum wages..
The minimum hourly wage would rise to $17 in New York City and $16 in the rest of the state by 2026 under an agreement between Gov. Hochul and legislative leaders. That’s an increase from the current rate of $15 in the city and $14.20 upstate.
Future increases would then be tied to the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers, a measurement of inflation.
