NJ legislators have introduced a bill to raise the minimum wage and it's simply disappointing.
In a state where nearly 40% of New Jersey households struggle to afford basic needs, it is disheartening that Democrats would turn against working poor families.
Under the Christie administration, both houses of the legislature passed a $15 minimum wage for all workers. Now that they have the opportunity to deliver on their promises, leadership has opted to undermine economic security for workers across New Jersey, specifically those industries comprised mostly of people of color and women.
We need you to sound the alarm and demand an inclusive $15 minimum wage legislation that does not leave any worker behind.
