The business-backed Partnership for New York City has often been aligned with Gov. Andrew Cuomo on major issues.

And his proposal for the increasing the state’s minimum wage to $10.50 and in New York City to $11.50 is no different.

The business consortium on Friday announced in its 2015 state agenda that it supported Cuomo’s two-tier wage proposal, which the governor himself has spent the last several days promoting through a tour of upstate cities.

But the Partnership also wants Albany to take “parallel action” to reduce regulations for employers, includign small businesses.

“The Governor’s budget proposes an increase in the state and city minimum wage, from the current rate of $8.75/hour statewide to $10.50 in the rest of the state and $11.50 in New York City,” the group wrote. “The Partnership supports this increase, but urges the legislature to tale parallel action to reduce legal and regulatory burdens that add to employer costs, particularly for small businesses.”

Cuomo this week rolled out a minimum wage campaign effort that included support for his plan from the state’s prominent labor unions leaders.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio wants a higher minimum wage for New York City than $11.50: $13, plus indexing future increases to the rate of inflation.
