New York’s Wage Board has endorsed a recommendation to raise the minimum wage for fast-food workers to $15 per hour. The new hourly rate will apply to employees of chains with at least 30 locations in New York.

State Labor Commissioner Mario J. Musolino is expected to approve the recommendation by mid-September.

If approved, the wage increase will be phased in over three years in New York City and six years in the rest of the state. The first hike would happen on Dec. 31, when fast-food workers in New York City would see their minimum wages increase from the current $8.75 to $10.50 per hour. The minimum for fast-food workers outside the city would increase to $9.75.

For workers in other industries, the current $8.75 minimum wage will increase throughout New York to $9 per hour on Dec. 31.
