Minimum wage changes in New York- Maridalia Mejia

Hello Everyone! I found this interesting post on the New York Times website, which speaks of Governor Cuomo’s new budget and how it will affect minimum wage starting in 2018. Our discussion about Nickel and Dimed raised questions about whether it is a realistic and wise choice to raise minimum wage to $15 an hour, because of living expenses nowadays. I propose that we ask the question, how do you think the new wages affect other aspects of our economy and society in New York City?http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/01/nyregion/new-york-budget-deal-with-higher-minimum-wage-is-reached.html?_r=0
