Wage board

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – About two dozen fast food workers watched as the announcement came down that they’d be getting $15/hr.
They immediately cheered when they heard the news, but that excitement quickly diminished when they realized it wouldn’t come until 2021.
The cheers turned into boos as the fast food wage board recommended a $15 minimum wage for all fast food workers in New York, but it will take 6 years for workers outside New York City to see that increase.
NYS restaurant association says this will force employers to cut hours, lay off employees, and use technology to offset labor costs.
