Lower-Wage Employment

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported a 6% increase in employment of people without a high school diploma in January on a year-to-year basis, an 18% jump in employment of black teens, and a 20% surge in employment of the disabled. In addition, average hourly earnings climbed 3.4% in the leisure and hospitality sector, compared with an overall labor force gain of 2.2%.

However, experts point out that wages are not growing fast enough, with "usual" weekly earnings up just 0.5% from late 2013 to late 2014 for workers at the bottom of all incomes, compared with a mere 0.4% increase for workers near the top. Experts indicate that employers need to pay more to secure workers for lower-wage jobs.

Mayor Michael Nutter, who vetoed paid sick leave legislation in 2011 and 2013, signed the bill into law on February 12. The law will take effect in 90 day and Philadelphia became the 17th city in the U.S. to enact paid sick laws.


The bill applies to businesses with 10 or more employees. Employees will accrue at least one hour of paid sick leave for every 40 hours worked, approximately five days a year. The bill would impact 200,000 Philadelphians, or about 40 percent of the city's workforce, who do not get paid sick leave, according to federal labor statistics

Our mission is to be the advocate for the success and growth of NJSA members and the New Jersey staffing industry through leadership in legislation, education, ethics and professional business practices.
