I don't know how much reaction there is to the doings of Albany. Keeping track of minimum wage proposals is difficult now that there are three different regions in the state and most have long ago come to the conclusion that what happens will happen.
Once there is a $15 wage in NYC and the rest of the state years later, when does the drumbeat start for even higher ?
Won't NNY workers at the bottom realize at some point they got screwed vis a vis downstate workers ?
And when the media gets reaction to the law, are they only allowed to interview people with six figure incomes ?
There are reporters who likely were rooting for $15 while their employers were not.
By the way, what happens to the "wage board" beneficiaries in fast food and where does the food service sub minimum wage for tipped employees go now ?
And what about this family leave law ? What's that all about ? Or the so called middle class tax cut which does leave rates the same for the rich and the poor but reduces rates over ten years for so called middle class up to $300K.
When a state budget is passed it takes a while to digest all the things that come with it.
