Does the Minimum Wage Affect You?
In a controversial move President Barack Obama increased the minimum wage for federal contractors this past year to more than $10 per hour.
Now, after the legislature in New York passed a mandate increasing the minimum wage last year, Governor Andrew Cuomo is warning employers to adhere to the new minimum wage standards in the state, $8.25 per hour effective this past January, $9.00 per hour in 2016.
