New York State to raise minimum wage for fast food workers

New York State moved on Wednesday to raise the minimum wage for fast food workers to 15 dollars an hour. It’s a more than 70 percent jump from the current 8.75 dollars last raised in 2009.
The raise is expected to cover some 180,000 workers statewide and affect
fast-food chains with 30 locations or more in the country.
U.S. fast food workers have been stuggling to stay above the poverty line with their notoriously low pay.
