The big storyline this legislative session was the push for and the eventual passage of Governor Cuomo's higher minimum wage proposal.  The new phasing-in will be at different rates depending on where you live but according to the National Federation of Small Businesses State Director Mike Durant, no matter if you live in Upstate or in the five boroughs, it will be a crushing blow to small businesses.
