We're one step closer to a $9 minimum wage in New York State!

I'm proud to say that the New York State Assembly has passed the minimum wage bill, which will be effective January 2014. This life-altering bill, beginning in January 2015, will also be indexed to inflation, that essentially means that the minimum wage will increase as the price of goods and services increases from year to year. 

It is now up to my colleagues in the Senate to help make this a reality! I am confident that this will happen, and will cherish the day when Governor Cuomo signs this needed piece of legislation into law.
