Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the fourth proposal of his 2018 State of the State agenda - a comprehensive strategy to engage at-risk youth in social and educational programs as a means of cutting off the recruiting pipeline of MS-13. Earlier this year, Governor Cuomo launched an aggressive campaign to crack down on the violent gang MS-13 on Long Island through targeted community engagement and the deployment of additional law enforcement officials. This comprehensive new initiative will build on the progress achieved, broaden the state's efforts and ensure that young people have better options available to them than joining a gang, including constructive, supportive networks they can turn to for help or guidance.

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today unveiled the fifth proposal of the 2018 State of the State: direct the Commissioner of Labor to schedule public hearings to examine industries and evaluate the possibility of ending minimum wage tip credits in New York State. In certain workplaces, such as car washes and restaurants, where wages and tips are both generally low, workers' income can rely entirely upon tips. These tips, meant as a reward for good service, instead serve as a critical wage subsidy that brings workers' wages just up to the legally mandated minimum wage. The Governor made the announcement this morning on the CATS Roundtable with John Catsimatidis.
