Empire State   Workers in Long Island will see their minimum pay go from $11 to $12

The lowest-paid workers in New York state are getting a raise just before the New Year.

The biggest boost is happening for employees in New York City, who will make at least $15 per hour.

In New York City, the $15 hourly rate kicks in on the last day of 2018 and will apply to fast-food workers and employees of businesses with 11 or more people; those businesses currently must pay a minimum wage of $13.

Workers in New York City's Long Island suburbs will see their minimum pay go from $11 to $12 on New Year's Eve before jumping to $15 in 2021. The rest of the state will see the minimum wage go up 70 cents, to $11.10, with further increases phased in over several years.
