In March of 2013, the New York State Legislature passed legislation which included an increase to the minimum wage from $7.25 per hour to $9.00 per hour. This increase is to happen over three years, beginning with $8.00 by December 31, 2013, $8.75 by the end of 2014, and then $9.00 by the end of 2015. Below is the revised student wage scale, to take effect with the second phase of the minimum wage increase.
