Employment-NYS Raises Minimum Wage, Effective Today

A reminder-Effective today (December 31), New York State raises its minimum wage from $7.25 per hour to $8.00 per hour. There is an updated minimum wage poster, reflecting the new minimum wage, that employers have to put up in a conspicuous place prior to January 1. An updated poster and other information may be found here.

The federal minimum wage remains at $7.25, but I’ve heard that the President and others want to raise it to $10 or more. Stay tuned.
