NY to Raise Fast Food Pay to $15 per Hour

Fast food workers in New York state were all but assured a major raise Wednesday when a state Wage Board recommended increasing the state’s minimum wage for fast-food workers to $15 per hour.

The board unanimously voted to recommend the increase be enacted incrementally by 2018 in New York City and by July 1, 2021, across the rest of the state. It also unanimously recommended that only national fast food chains with more than 30 locations should be affected. By that definition, owners of any major fast food franchise — even if they own just one location — would be required to pay employees $15 per hour.
