NECA says FG’s delay in implementing the new minimum wage is counter-productive


Starting on December 31st, employees at New York City businesses with more than 10 workers will be the first to reach the full $15 minimum wage, which is being implemented in phases throughout the state.

Early effects of ballot measures passed in Missouri and Arkansas are expected to raise the minimum wage from $7.85 an hour to $12 an hour and $8.50 an hour to $11 an hour, respectively, by 2021. In coordination with the increase, the state Department of Labor will release a multimedia public education campaign to raise awareness about the new minimum wage.

And the rest of NY state workers will see the minimum wage go up to $11.10 per hour, reaching $12.50 by 2020.

The National Commission on Minimum Wages (Conasami) assured in a statement that the jobs of most temporary workers are personal services (24.2 percent), industrialists, artisans and assistants (23.2) and merchants (19.2). Employers will also be required to pay tipped workers overtime hours at time-and-a-half the minimum wage rate. The average worker will earn an extra $90 to $1,300 each year, depending on the size of the wage increase in their state. More than 40 cities, half of them in California, have implemented their own minimum wages, reflecting the increasing costs of living in numerous country's most economically dynamic areas.
