  Section 1. Subdivision 4 of section 652 of the labor law,  as  amended

  4.  Notwithstanding subdivisions one and two of this section, the wage
for an employee who is a food service worker receiving tips shall  be  a
cash  wage  of  at  least  three dollars and thirty cents per hour on or
after March thirty-first, two thousand; three  dollars  and  eighty-five
cents  on  or  after  January  first,  two  thousand five; at least four
dollars and thirty-five cents on or after January  first,  two  thousand
six;  [and]  at  least  four dollars and sixty cents on or after January
first, two thousand seven[, provided that the tips of such an  employee,
when  added  to  such  cash  wage, are equal to or exceed]; AND AT LEAST

this  subdivision,  the  cash  wage payable under this subdivision shall
automatically be increased by the proportionate  increase  in  the  cash
wage payable under such federal law, and will be immediately enforceable
