New York NOW won its first ever New York State Broadcasters award this week at the association’s annual dinner. It was honored in the “Outstanding Locally Produced TV Show” category for its episode on the rise and fall of the Eastman Kodak Company and how it’s affected the city of Rochester (see program below).
A new poll finds the overwhelming majority of New Yorkers would like to see the state raise its minimum wage. Governor Cuomo does not rule the proposal out.
The Quinnipiac poll found that 78% of those surveyed think the state’s minimum wage should be higher than the current $7.25 an hour, with more than half saying it should be increased to over $8.50 cents an hour.
