New York Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos isn't thrilled with an idea to increase the state's minimum wage.  The Republican Skelos says Democratic Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver's proposal to move the minimum wage to eight dollars and 50 cents could be a "job killer."  Other Republicans in the Senate have expressed concern that a minimum wage increase in the state while the overall economy is in a slump could cause more problems than good.
