The unified efforts of 2.5 million working people and the 3,000 local unions of the New York State AFL-CIO lead to a major victory on Monday, as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) signed a law raising the state’s minimum wage. Millions will see wage increases. Future wage increases will be tied to economic indicators. The law also establishes a robust 12 weeks of paid family leave for working people.
