Brooklyn Republican Sen. Marty Golden warned of dire consequences for small businesses if a minimum wage increase is approved this year, but he wouldn’t rule out blocking the measure from being included in the final budget deal.

“Everything is in negotiation,” Golden said in an interview. “For me to stand here and tell you we’re going to block anything, the answer is no. We’re not going to block. We’re going to work with the governor, work with the Assembly, but the position for the Senate is $9 an hour. If you want to keep small businesses open, you need to do that.”

Gov. Andrew Cuomo wants to increase that state’s minimum wage to $10.50, with an increase to $11.50 for New York City. Mayor Bill de Blasio wants to increase the wage even higher, to $15, which is supported by Assembly Democrats.

Cuomo in Rochester today indicated his proposal was a balance between Assembly Democrats pushing for a higher wage and Senate Republicans opposing it.

Still, Republicans only two years ago agreed to a phased-in minimum wage increase that will conclude at the end of this year, when it grows to $9. The Senate’s one-house budget resolution released today does not include minimum wage increase.

Despite not ruling out the wake hike from being included in the budget, Golden said the impact of another wage increase so soon could be detrimental.

Golden pointed to the recent $2.50 minimum wage increase for tipped workers as approved by the state Department of Labor earlier this year as a strain on small businesses.

“What you’re doing here is your diminishing small business and putting small business out of business and there’s less people working,” Golden said. “So at the end of the day, the results here is going to be the opposite effect. You’re going to have less people working than you have working.”
