Once a Fringe Idea, the $15 Minimum Wage Is Making Big Gains

“Even before I ran for Governor, I supported a $15/hour minimum wage. There weren’t many political leaders who shared this view at the time.  Today, New Jersey is on a path to $15/hour and the #Fightfor15 movement is making strides nationwide.”
- Governor Phil Murphy
