 AN  ACT  to amend the labor law, in relation to raising the minimum wage
   annually by a percentage which is based on inflation;  and  to  repeal
   subdivision 6 of section 652 of the labor law relating thereto
 
   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.

   Section 1. This act shall be known and may be cited as the "raise  the
 wage act".
   §  2.  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 flat at $15 in New York city since 2019. In the
 New York city suburbs it is also stalled at $15 and  under  current  law
 will not increase further. And in the rest of the state, years after the
 legislature  last  acted to raise the minimum wage it is still gradually
 inching up to $15, but will not increase further until  the  legislature
 acts.
   At  the  same  time, record inflation is causing the real value of the
 minimum wage to plummet across the state as consumers struggle with  the
 rapidly  rising  cost  of  necessities.  In New York city, its value has
 already fallen more than 15%, and is projected to fall a further 15%  by
