Feb. 4, 2019 — Local business owners applauded Gov. Phil Murphy for signing a bill into law today gradually raising the state’s minimum wage to $15 an hour.
Raising the minimum wage will help businesses, communities and the economy as workers have more money to spend throughout the Garden State. What’s more, businesses will benefit from lower employee turnover and increased productivity and customer satisfaction. Business owners ranging from restaurant owners to manufacturers support a $15 minimum wage.
