Governor Cuomo has proposed raising the minimum wage to $10.50 an hour throughout New York State, and $11.50 an hour in New York City. If enacted, New York State would have the highest minimum wage in the nation. Those in support feel low-wage workers need the boost to survive. Those against feel employers may leave New York, moving businesses and jobs to states with lower wages. Do you support Governor Cuomo's proposed raises to the minimum wage by the end of 2016?
