NYC Restaurants Slash Staff over $15 Minimum Wage

New York City restaurants, feeling the pinch of trying to make ends meet, are slashing their staff after a state law that took effect at the end of 2018 is mandating restaurants with 11 or more workers to pay a $15 an hour minimum wage.

The legal minimum wage in New York City rose from $13 to $15 on December 31, 2018, giving workers a temporary hourly raise while forcing employers to cut those employees’ hours to make ends meet.

The wage hike is the city’s third since December 31, 2016, when the city’s minimum wage rose to $11 an hour.
