New Jersey Minimum Wage Bill Now on Governor's Desk

Trenton, NJ

By Lisa I. Fried-Grodin

By a narrow margin, the New Jersey Senate passed a bill yesterday that would ultimately raise the state's minimum wage to $15 per hour.  The bill, which passed with a 21 to 18 vote, now goes to Governor Chris Christie for consideration.  If the Governor signs the bill, the state's current $8.38 per hour minimum wage, would rise to $10.10 in 2017 and phase to $15 in 2021.
