New Yorks Farmers Might Get A Break If The States Minimum Wage Is Boosted To 15

Speaking to reporters in Niagara Falls on Tuesday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said his office is currently working on a modification for the agriculture industry, but he didn't give specifics.

"I believe we have to make a special modification for the agricultural industry, because the rules are different there, and the employees work on a different basis,” he said.

The governor's minimum-wage plan is part of his $145 billion state budget proposal, and Assembly Democrats have said including a wage boost is a priority in budget talks.
