Minimum Wage Bill Passed
The New Jersey Senate passed the minimum wage bill on June 23 that will gradually raise the state minimum wage to $15 an hour. Currently it is $8.38.
The measure has already been approved by the state Assembly, so the next stop is Gov. Chris Christie's desk where he is expected to veto the bill.  If Governor Christie does not veto the bill, New Jersey would become the third state -- behind California and New York -- to be on track toward a $15 minimum.

Proponents have said they will put the measure on the 2017 ballot to let voters decide whether the state should move toward a $15 minimum wage. The bill passed by the New Jersey Senate on Thursday would raise the $8.38 minimum to $10.10 in 2017, and then by at least $1.25 every year thereafter until 2021. At that point it would continue to be inflation adjusted.
