Incumbents of some 10,000 state positions in the Executive branch, the Legislature, the Judiciary, and the Department of Law and the Office of State Comptroller are expected to benefit by the implementation of the Governor’s plan. Approximately 9,000 of these positions are outside of New York City and 1,000 within New York City.

According to the Governor, this wage adjustment will be reflected in the State’s Budget Policy and Reporting Manual. When fully phased in on
July 1, 2021, the Governor’s estimated cost of this $15 minimum wage for state employees will be about $20.6 million, including the anticipated additional costs for fringe benefits.
