And I Thought All Those Public Employees Were Living Large

All for $15 an hour for state employees, but a) they weren't earning it already? and b) Oh, right, most of them were.
State workers in New York City would earn $15 an hour by the end of 2018; state workers outside of New York City would also see wages rise, though more slowly, with rates climbing to $15 by the end of 2021. All told, some 10,000 workers would see a bump in pay, according to the governor’s office, with the vast majority of those living upstate or outside the city.

By 2021, TEN THOUSAND WORKERS will receive a pay bump. And good for them. That's a bit less than 5% of state workers according to the most recent data this lazy blogger could find.

But, hey, good headlines Governor Bro.
