Workers push or minimum wage increase at Capitol

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- Several hundred fast-food workers and other low-wage employees from around New York have descended on the state Capitol to pressure lawmakers to raise the minimum wage from $8 to $10.10 an hour and let local cities raise it even higher.

The effort is unlikely to succeed, however, before lawmakers adjourn Thursday.

The proposal would authorize New York City and other communities to raise the wage to as high as $13.13, and allow future automatic increases based on inflation.

The measure has broad support in the state Assembly but would likely fall a few votes short in the Senate.

Omar Freckleton makes $8 an hour at a Brooklyn McDonalds. He attended Tuesday's rally and says it's important that workers make their voices heard.
