More from Oliver, Wisniewski, Prieto & Johnson on Gov. Christie’s Conditional Veto of Minimum Wage Increase

Members of Leadership Continue to Pan Gov’s Rejection of Tying Future Increases to the Consumer Price Index

(TRENTON) – Assembly Speaker Sheila Y. Oliver (D-Essex), Assembly Deputy Speaker John S. Wisniewski (D-Middlesex), Assembly Budget Committee Chair Vincent Prieto (D-Hudson) and Assembly Majority Conference Leader Gordon M. Johnson (D-Bergen) issued a multimedia package Wednesday in which they continue to criticize Gov. Christie’s decision to conditionally veto minimum wage increase legislation.

The legislation (A-2162) would increase New Jersey’s minimum wage from $7.25/hr to $8.50/hr and would tie future increases to increases in the Consumer Price Index (CPI). The governor’s conditional veto removes the CPI tie-in and opts for a $1 phase-in over three years, a move Assembly leadership finds unacceptable.

The multimedia package consists of a video of the Assembly members panning the governor’s conditional veto and audio and a transcript of same.
