Syracuse Hiking Minimum Wage for City Workers

October 22, 2015

 

 

Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner is setting a precedent in New York State. On October 21 she raised the minimum wage to $15/hour for all city employees. The change will affect 69 employees effective immediately. 

 

This move is aligned with other Democrats around the country to push the minimum wage to $15/hour, including N.Y. Gov. Andrew Cuomo. 

 

The raises will cost the city approximately $200,000 a year. Mayor Minor said declining annual pension costs allow the city to afford the pay raise. 

 

As a supporter of worker rights and fair wages, I say well done Syracuse!
