As a broader minimum wage increase for NY workers goes into effect Sunday, fast-food workers in the state will be getting a raise, too.
Goodell said the earned income tax credit is targeted to those who need it most, while a minimum wage increase is across the board. At the time the law passed, the country's first minimum wage was $0.25 per hour.
Assemblyman Andy Goodell, R-Jamestown, said many economic studies have been done that show there will be a loss of entry-level jobs as the wages in NY state increase.
"I'm very concerned raising the cost of entry-level jobs will highlight the differences in cost between doing business in NY versus other states", Goodell said on Friday. For these employees, the state wage is tied to the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, which requires an act of Congress and the President's signature to change.

Cathy Young, R-Olean, and Goodell for making sure the increase to $15 is phased in over the next few years.
According to the state Department of Labor, the minimum wage increase for fast-food workers applies to any employee whose job duties include customer service, cooking, food or drink preparation, delivery, security, stocking supplies or equipment, cleaning or routine maintenance. The minimum wage covers fast-food workers at more than 130 chains operating in NY, including Arby's, Burger King, Chick-fil-A, Dairy Queen, Domino's Pizza, KFC, McDonalds, Panera Bread, Pizza Hut, Starbucks, Subway, Taco Bell and Wendy's.
