The rate to be received, depends in three main aspects: a. The region/county where you work; b. If your job is subject to tips; and c. How many employees are working for the employer. The 2022 minimum wage rates are: 1. New York City: For this year, regardless the number of employees working at the place, minimum wage rate remain at $15.00 per hour. If you are a tipped employee, the minimum wage and tip credits are now as follow: a) $12.50 /hr in cash wage for service workers (plus, tips must be equivalent to at least $2.50/hr); b) $10.00/hr in cash wage for restaurant workers (plus, tips must be equivalent to at least $5.00/hr). 2. Long Island and Westchester Counties The minimum wage rate increased to $15.00 per hour, for non-tipped workers. If you are a tipped worker, the minimum wage credit is as follows: a) $12.50/hr in cash wage for service workers (plus, tips must be equivalent to at least $2.50/hr); b) $10.00/hr in cash wage for restaurant workers (plus, tips must be equivalent to at least $5.00/hr). 3.
