Awesome op-ed here: "Not only is a $15 minimum wage an issue of dignity and justice, it also makes good economic sense. If you are a taxpayer, contact your legislators to stop using your tax dollars to subsidize corporate profits."

Working families are expected to hand over resources to give corporations & billionaires a free ride. Corporate welfare is a serious problem. Who needs to earn $191k per min. while 46M Americans earn less than $15 an hour?

"This is a crisis requiring immediate attention not posturing as usual." Hear hear! It's not like we need to figure out what to do here. We know what the proper policy is, the leg already passed a good bill in 2016. Time to get this done NOW!

Are they also offering free childcare? So now we have working parents and unattended children? These people are totally clueless! By the way: you *can* have 2, full-time working parents who are *also* eligible for food stamps.

New Jersey Policy Perspective Nov 12
"But, according to an analysis by New Jersey Policy Perspectives, a New Jersey family with one child needs a wage of $20.07 an hour to make ends meet. This is a crisis requiring immediate attention not posturing as usual."

After passing a pay equity law, lawmakers need to be consistent in their beliefs and equally include young workers in a $15 minimum wage. Work is work and labor should be valued. Sign this petition to let Trenton know you agree!

Ms. Fonda called for income equality and equal wages, esp. for women. She says she is using her status to support NJ Assembly Bill 4687 providing a path to minimum to $15.

A $15 minimum wage was a campaign promise of multiple sitting elected officials, it's far past time to get it done NOW. The workers, families & businesses of NJ can't wait any longer nor should they have to. $15 by 2023! 10/10

None of this is to say that keeping unemployment low isn't important, it's just to point out that low unemployment for it's own sake isn't indicative of very much. Recent report shows 4/10 NJ residents considered working poor. We've gotta fix that.
