New York Governor Andrew Cuomo continues his aggressive push to establish a $15/hour threshold across the state.  Last week, he participated in a rally in New York City with Labor Secretary Thomas Perez, a gaggle of union leaders, elected officials, clergy and other advocates to announce that the minimum wage for state university workers would increase to $15/hour over the next five years (by July 1, 2021 statewide and December 31, 2018 in New York City).  Notwithstanding that the minimum wage in New York just increased this week to $9 per hour, the Governor’s announcement means that 28,000 university workers will see that minimum increase by another $.75/hour next month.
