Three increases in New York's minimum wage will take effect Dec. 31, as Gov. Andrew Cuomo continues to push for a $15 statewide minimum wage.

The overall minimum wage will be increased to $9 per hour, while the rates for tipped hospitality workers will be increased to $7.50 per hour. The minimum wage for workers in fast food chains will increase to $10.50 in New York City and $9.75 in the rest of the state.

“No one who works full time should ever be condemned to a life of poverty,” said Cuomo. “As we prepare to ring in the New Year, we are making a fundamental difference in the lives of hundreds of thousands of workers across this state. I am proud to mark these milestones in the fight for fair pay for workers in fast food, tipped industries, and others – but too many home health care workers, airport workers and so many others continue to be left behind. That’s why we will continue fighting for a $15 minimum wage so that all workers can afford a decent life and a decent opportunity in New York State.”
