   THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section  1. Legislative findings. As New  Yorkers  struggle  with  the
 rapidly  rising  cost of living, their paychecks are not keeping up. The
 state minimum wage has been frozen at $15 in New York City  since  2018.
 In the suburbs of New York City it reached $15 in 2021 and under current
 law will not increase further. And upstate, it is projected to reach $15
 in  a  few  years,  but  will  not increase further after that until the
 legislature acts.
   At the same time, record inflation is eroding the value of the minimum
 wage as workers face rapidly rising prices. For  example,  adjusted  for
 consumer  price  inflation  from  the fourth quarter of 2018 through the
 first quarter of 2022, the purchasing power of New York City's $15 mini-
 mum wage has declined by 13.6% and is now just $12.96. As inflation  has
 remained  high  since  the  second  quarter  of 2021 and is likely to be
 elevated for some time, the value of the minimum wage across New York is
 falling even lower as consumers struggle with the rising cost of  neces-
 sities.  And  even  in  times of more stable price growth, workers still
 lose real wages as the minimum wage stays stagnant.
   Meanwhile, other high-cost cities and states are raising their minimum
 wages well above $15. Thirty-three cities and counties have wages  above
