Stop Trenton’s Minimum-Wage Hike
TAKE ACTION: Contact your Representatives in Trenton NOW and Tell Them to Vote NO on Job-Destroying Minimum-Wage Hike!
New Jersey is still struggling with unemployment close to 10%, yet Trenton liberals are poised to make things worse by passing a whopping 17% increase in the state’s minimum-wage!
Hiking New Jersey’s minimum-wage from $7.25 to $8.50 an hour will destroy more jobs in New Jersey, especially for low-skilled workers and teenagers looking to gain valuable job experience and save and invest for their future.
It gets worse. The latest plan to hike the minimum-wage includes an escalator clause, meaning that no matter the economic conditions the minimum-wage will go up every year!
