Minimum wage increase takes effect Dec. 31
New York will continue with the $15.00 minimum hourly wage phase-in for upstate counties on Dec. 31, Gov. Kathy Hochul announced this week.
Workers outside of New York City, Long Island and Westchester County will see an increase by $1.00 an hour, to $14.20 from $13.20, following a statutorily required economic analysis conducted by the New York State Division of the Budget.
Additionally, the minimum wage for home care aides, which took effect on Oct. 1, will also increase by $1.00 to $16.20 an hour in counties in upstate New York.
“With inflation and a national labor shortage impacting our state’s economy, my team is doing everything possible to put money in New Yorkers’ pockets and address the rising cost of living,” Hochul said in a statement. “Fair, competitive wages are essential for helping families thrive and attracting top talent to our state and our administration remains committed to using every tool at our disposal to move New York’s economy forward.”
