Gov. Cuomo holds rally for minimum wage hike

Gov. Andrew Cuomo took his campaign for a $15 minimum wage to New York City Tuesday morning.



Cuomo hosted a "Drive for 15" rally at the Madison Square Boys and Girls Club.



SUNY employees and fast food workers in the five boroughs are already on the receiving end of the wage increase, but the governor wants it for everyone statewide.



Some New York City businesses have argued that a minimum wage hike would be too costly.



The issue is set to be debated by lawmakers in Albany later this year.
