This week marked the final hearing by a board specifically appointed by Governor Andrew Cuomo to consider raising the wage for fast-food workers across the state. Supporters outside the Albany hearing chanted in favor of a $15 minimum wage.  It currently stands at $8.75.

Heather Briccetti, The Business Council President and CEO, joins us this week to explain her thoughts on the issue.  She also discusses the good relationship they have had with the Democratic governor and whether she thinks that will continue in his second term. 

Watch what she has to say on that issue in our full program above.
