Monitoring the Minimum Wage

Wednesday, February 14, 2018 at 9:00 am to 11:00 am

Wollman Hall, Eugene Lang College 65 West 11th Street Room B500, New York, NY 10003

The minimum wage in New York City has been increasing, incrementally, from $8 per hour in 2014 to $15 per hour by December 31, 2018. Each increase presents opportunities and challenges for local businesses and for workers and jobseekers earning at or near the minimum wage. Join members of the local business community in a discussion about how they are adapting to the minimum wage increase, how those adaptations are impacting employees earning the minimum wage or just above, and what workforce development stakeholders can do to be responsive and proactive to these changes.
