New York's Senate Says Who Cares if New York Can Compete With Other States?

That's essentially the message from the New York State Senate as it voted 51-7 Monday to override Governor George Pataki's veto of a minimum wage bill previously passed by the Senate in August to raise the minimum wage from $5.15 an hour to $7.15 an hour by 2007. January 1 will see the wage pop up to $6, followed by a rise on New Year’s Day each of the following two years, to $6.75 in 2006, and $7.15 in 2007. But why should the Senate care? Their jobs are virtually lifetime sinecures.
