Over 1.2 million New Jerseyans struggle to make ends meet
Underpaid and stretched to the limit, more than 1 in 4 workers across our state make less than $15 an hour. A statewide $15 minimum wage for ALL workers will lift up the lives of New Jerseyans and their families.
No worker should be left behind in the Fight for $15
New Jersey must enact an exemption-free minimum wage increase to $15 an hour in order to give workers and their families a chance to live in one of the country's most expensive states. Leaving any worker behind would create a permanent subclass of worker and perpetuate inequities felt primarily by women, people of color, and low income families.
