Senator Dawn Marie Addiego (R-8) issued the following statement regarding her votes against SCR-1 and S-3, measures which would increase New Jersey’s minimum wage and require annual adjustments tied to increases in the Consumer Price Index (CPI):

“It is clear that the large minimum wage increase that Democrats are pushing will make it harder for out of work New Jerseyans to find jobs, and more difficult for struggling small businesses to maintain the employees they already have.

“Furthermore, enacting automatic annual wage increases will add an ever increasing burden on employers. We don’t have a crystal ball that lets us see future economic conditions, so mandating future wage increases now is simply irresponsible.”
