Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Thursday shrugged off the call from New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio for an even either minimum wage increase than what is proposed in the state budget, saying it’s up to the state Legislature to vote on the issue, not the mayor.

“The mayor’s opinion is relevant, but the mayor doesn’t vote on it,” Cuomo said in Syracuse. “It’s the Assembly and the Senate. Everyone has an opinion on this issue, I respect everyone’s opinion, but it’s going to be up to the Assembly and the Senate.”

Cuomo’s minimum wage proposal would create a two-tier system for the minimum wage: $11.50 for New York City, $10.50 for the rest of the state.

De Blasio, a fellow Democrat, is calling for a $13 minimum wage for the city and have it indexed to inflation so that it reaches $15 an hour by 2019.

“The current minimum wage proposal simply doesn’t do enough to help New York City,” de Blasio said in his address. “That’s why we will fight to raise New York City’s minimum wage to more than $13 per hour in 2016—while indexing the minimum wage, which would bring us to a projected $15 per hour by 2019.”

Cuomo’s plan does not include indexing future increases and he is opposed to allowing local government raise the wage on their own through a state-based formula.

Cuomo did endorse indexing and a version of local control over a minimum wage hike upon receiving the endorsement of the Working Families Party in May.

“The state minimum wage is set by the state Legislature. It’s really going to be between the Assembly and the Senate.

I don’t. The state minimum wage is set by the state Legislature,” Cuomo said of the wage proposal. “It’s really going to be between the Assembly and the Senate.”

Cuomo also noted that his wage proposal comes from the political middle, a comfortable spot for him.

“The Assembly and the Senate will have to decide,” Cuomo said. “Some people think my proposal is too high, some people think my proposal is too low.”

A Cuomo spokeswoman yesterday was harsher in the assessment of de Blasio’s minimum wage proposal, calling it a non-starter with the state Legislature, as did a spokesman for Republican Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos.

The current minimum wage in New York is $8.75. It is set to increase to $9 by the end of the year.
