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.

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