New York’s fast food workers won a major victory last month when the state’s Wage Board voted to recommend a substantial increase in their minimum wage. The decision, which comes in the wake of other recent minimum wage increases in San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles, and other cities, provides for a $15 minimum wage for fast food workers, to be phased in over the next several years. The Wage Board’s recommendation will be finalized and published with a 15-day public comment period before being presented to the state’s acting labor commissioner.
