Equally as important, however, are the considerations of small businesses who drive our local economies. The plan includes a meaningful tax rebate for small business owners to help transition to the new wage rates. The conversation has advanced today, but I remain hopeful that the effort to adjust the wage increase timeline will continue. Reasonably lengthening the implementation of the final $15.00 per hour rate - especially for downstate communities - is an important consideration to further assist employers.
