Governor Cuomo continues to play chess to everyone else's checkers when it comes to the $15 minimum wage.
The use of the wage boards in certain industries. The split upstate-downstate phase ins.....and now a promise of a special deal will be offered for farmers to help them pay for the higher wage.
Those without a lobby or a sympathy factor are on their own.
Someone who knows how all this works told me the other night its all done. The wage will be approved with a side deal for upstate lawmakers to placate farmers.
Game, set, match for the Governor.
