First NY minimum wage increases coming up

On December 31, 2016, the first increases of New York’s incremental move towards a $15 minimum wage will take effect.

The minimum wage will increase at different rates depending on an employer’s size and their location in the state.

Employers in New York City with 11 or more employees must pay their workers $11.00 per hour, while those in the city with 10 or fewer employees must pay their workers $10.50 per hour.

Employers in Nassau, Suffolk, and Westchester Counties must pay their workers $10.00 per hour, and all other employers must pay their workers $9.70 per hour.

The minimum wage for fast food workers – regardless of employer size – will increase to $12.00 per hour for those working in New York City, and $10.75 per hour for those outside the city.
