Increase the Minimum Wage

The Economic Justice Task Force would like people to send letters to our Governor asking him to sign the minimum wage increase bill on his desk.  The New Jersey State Legislature has approved legislation (A2162) raising the state minimum wage and linking it to annual increases in the cost of living (also known as the Cost of Living Adjustment, or COLA).   The bill calls for an increase to $8.50 per hour from the current $7.25 per hour and an annual adjustment linked to any increase in COL.  Sample letter.
