GILLIBRAND REPORT: INCREASING FEDERAL MINIMUM WAGE WOULD BENEFITNEARLY 1.8 MILLION
 
NEW YORK WORKERS, BOOST WAGES BY $3.2 BILLION
With nearly 1.8 million New Yorkers earning the minimum wage or just above this rate, or 20 percent of all workers across the state,
U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand’s
effort would increase the federal minimum wage from$7.25 an hour to $10.10 over the next three years. Senator Gillibrand is pushing to pass the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2013, legislation she is an original co-sponsor of that would boost the incomes of an estimated 1.8 million New York workers, according to the Economic Policy Institute, and generate an estimated $3.2 billion in wageincreases for New York workers, causing new consumer spending at New York businesses. A majority of the lowest wage earners in New York who would benefit from an increase, or about 90 percent, areadult workers, not teenagers in after-school and seasonal jobs. 54 percent of low-wage New Yorkers who would  see increased wages under this proposal are women, many with children, and about half are minorities.
