Cuomo said he wants to make New York the first U.S. state to adopt a $15 an hour minimum for everyone, not just for fast food workers.

The announcement comes on the same day that Acting State Labor Commissioner Mario Musolino signed an order designating the $15 per hour statewide minimum wage for fast food workers.

Cuomo says if you work full-time, you shouldn’t have to live in poverty.

Cuomo’s proposed all-industry minimum wage increase would be phased in, taking full effect by Dec. 31, 2018, in New York City, and July 1, 2021, for the rest of the state.
