Farms in crisis?

Farmers say minimum wage increase could devastate local agriculture

Tony Emmi said the increase in the minimum wage mandated under the 2016-17 state budget will hurt his bottom line. By the end of the year, businesses across the state must pay their employees 70 cents more an hour as part of the phase-in that will eventually bring the state’s minimum wage to $15 an hour, a move the state’s farm lobby pushed against.

FROM THE ASSEMBLY: Right to vote had beginnings in Upstate NY

Many of the early crusaders who fought for the right to vote lived in Upstate New York. Men and women helped this cause, but three Upstate women in particular — Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, and Matilda Josyln Gage — are credited with shaping the national conversation in the mid and late 1800s, which led to women’s suffrage in 1920. All of the women were also abolitionists.

With days to go before the state budget is due, one of the most contentious issues remaining is whether the state’s minimum wage should be increased to $15 an hour. This issue does not have to be included in this year’s budget, but rather could be accomplished in a standalone bill.
