$15 Or Bust


  The plan to give most of New York state's fast-food workers a $15 minimum wage is taking another step toward reality. 

On Friday a state Wage Board formally filed the proposal with the state Department of Labor. That's a largely bureaucratic step, but it also means the proposal is likely to be approved by Gov. Andrew Cuomo's administration by mid-September. The increase would be gradually phased in over three years in New York City and over six years elsewhere.
