Fast Food Workers: Your Minimum Wage is Going Up

Thanks to the Fight For $15, New York State has put fast food workers on the path to $15 an hour! The New York City Fast Food Minimum Wage goes up to $12 on December 31, 2016.

Fast Food* 31 Dec 2015 31 Dec 2016 31 Dec 2017 31 Dec 2018
NYC $10.50 $12.00 $13.50 $15.00
Rest of NY State $9.75 $10.75 $11.75 $12.75

Fast food workers have led the Fight for $15, helping to boost the minimum wage across New York State. As our minimum wage goes up, workers in other industries will see a smaller minimum wage increase.
