The minimum wage for app-based restaurant delivery workers in New York City increased Monday thanks to a rule the city issued last summer requiring their pay to be adjusted for inflation each year.

Delivery workers for apps like Uber Eats and Grubhub will now earn at least $19.56 per hour, before tips, Mayor Eric Adams said at a press conference.

Before the city began enforcing the rule in December, app-based food delivery workers earned, on average, about $5.39 per hour, City Hall said in a news release.

Workers will earn at least $19.96 per hour, with an inflation adjustment, when the rate is fully phased in on April 1 of next year, according to the release.
