Mineola, NY- Effective August 1, 2017, the current Living Wage rate for employees of vendors

with Nassau County service contracts will increase to $16.07 per hour for employees without

increases are adjusted annually based on the New York Metropolitan CPI-U Index, and will

Office is responsible for auditing the rate increase and in monitoring compliance with the Law.
