Senate Overrides Minimum Wage Veto
Senator Carl L. Marcellino (R-Syosset), member of the Senate Labor Committee, announced on Dec. 8, that the Senate recently voted to override the veto which prevented New York State from increasing the minimum wage. The bill, cosponsored by Marcellino, increases the minimum wage in New York, over a three-year period, to $7.15 per hour on Jan. 1, 2007. Small businesses are asking the legislature to come to their aid to help them cope with this additional increase in the cost of doing business.
