Minimum Wage & Overtime (FARE Grant)

All New York workers are entitled to receive at least an hourly minimum wage rate. The minimum wage rate is $16.00 for New York City, Long Island, and Westchester, and $15.00 for the remainder of New York State. Most workers must receive overtime pay after working 40 hours in a work week. Overtime pay is one-and-one-half times the regular pay rate.

Note: Agricultural workers currently earn overtime after working 56 hours in a work week, and for any hours worked on their designated day of rest.
