“A growing list of business leaders and economists confirm that phased in over five years, a $15 wage is feasible for employers both upstate and down, and would help both workers and the state’s economy.

“We commend Governor Cuomo for his bold vision and urge the State Legislature to join him in making a $15 wage a reality for all workers in all regions of the state.”
