Take Action to Raise NJ's Minimum Wage


The New Jersey State AFL-CIO and the community advocacy organization Working Families United for New Jersey, Inc., are at the forefront of a new campaign to ensure that every worker in our state has the opportunity to earn a survivable wage.

That’s why the state federation and our allies in the community are championing the bill S-15/A-15, which raises the state’s minimum wage to $15 per hour over the next five years.

A $15 per hour minimum wage would help lift hundreds of thousands of women, children and families out of poverty. Raising the wage to $15 per hour would also stimulate New Jersey’s economy by giving our lowest wage workers additional spending power.

Please take a moment to convey to your legislators the importance of passing bill S-15/A-15. Send a message directly to the legislators in your district by CLICKING HERE or on the photo.

By supporting New Jersey’s lowest wage workers, you help uplift all workers in our state!
