Gov. Andrew Cuomo kicked off a bus tour Tuesday to push a $15 an hour minimum wage in New York.
Cuomo said raising the wage in New York would lead to a national push for higher salaries for low-income workers.
Cuomo’s bus tour is expected to visit upstate within the next few weeks.
Cuomo is seeking to raise the minimum wage from $9 an hour to $15 an hour by 2021.
The measure is opposed by business groups and Senate Republicans.
