14 states raising minimum wage in 2016, including New York | New York’s PIX11 / WPIX-TV

Lawmakers in 13 states and cities — including California, New York and Washington, D.C. — have proposed legislation and ballot measures calling for a $15 minimum that will get consideration in 2016.

In most places, the increase to $15 is being phased in over a few years to give businesses a little time to adjust.

That’s because a $15 minimum often reflects a 50%-plus hike from the local minimum in place today. And it represents a 107% increase over the $7.25 federal minimum wage.
