NEW YORK (WABC) -- Protesters gathered at New York City Hall Tuesday to push for a higher minimum wage at the state level.
They are hoping for an increase from $15 to $20.
Protesters included workers, business owners, and lawmakers.
New York State Senator Jessica Ramos was among the attendees.
"$15 just isn't cutting it anymore," Ramos said. "We see that the cost of living keeps increasing... the cost of rent, the cost of food, the cost of gasoline, and everything else. And working families are having a really tough time getting by."
The group "Raise New York" organized the gathering. Ten years ago, they successfully led the charge to raise the minimum wage to $15.
After the rally at City Hall, the group marched through parts of Lower Manhattan.
