The minimum wage ballot question will appear on the general election ballot November 5. The below municipalities and counties have adopted resolutions in support of raising the minimum wage.
Currently, New Jersey’s minimum wage is among the lowest minimum wage in the United States, matching the federal mandatory minimum. Voting yes on Ballot Question #2 raise New Jersey’s minimum wage from $7.25 to $8.25 an hour would impact a total of 429,000 working New Jerseyans, 11% of the state’s workforce. That includes 241,000 individuals who are directly affected and 188,000 who are indirectly affected.
Thanks to our partners and neighbors who have supported the “Raise the Wage” campaign and worked hard to ensure that all communities of voters understand that we need to raise the minimum wage.
