Governor Andrew Cuomo on Thursday announced a new minimum wage policy for thousands of the city's airport workers.

Effective immediately, workers who are making $9 an hour or less will see an automatic $1 increase to their hourly pay.

On February 1 of next year, all workers will receive a raise to $10.10 if they're making less than that amount.

In a statement, Cuomo said, "By increasing the pay of thousands of hard-working airport employees, we are rewarding them for job performance, creating a more stable workforce and ultimately ensuring a better experience for all."

Starting in 2016, airport employees will see their wages go up each year according to the annual percentage increase of the Consumer Price Index.
