Starting Friday, thousands of workers in Upstate New York are going to get paid just a little bit more each hour.

That's because a minimum wage increase will raise their hourly rate from $ 12.50 an hour to $13.20 an hour. The increase is part of a plan approved in 2016 to phase-in a minimum wage of $ 15.00 an hour for all workers. That means the labor department has to bump up minimum wage each year until it reaches that benchmark.
