Chris Christie Faces Deadline on Raising Minimum Wage

Gov. Chris Christie is facing a deadline to act on raising New Jersey's minimum wage to $10.10 an hour in the next year and to at least $15 over the next five.

When lawmakers return from an August break, likely after Labor Day, Christie will have to veto the law if he wants to block its enactment, reports CNS News.. Legislation may become law in New Jersey if the governor fails to take action after 45 legislative days.

Will Christie do the heroic thing and veto the legislation so that more low-skilled black youth will be able to find jobs or will he stick it to the kids because of political pressure?

Stay tuned.



  1. As I have tweeted elsewhere, "I wish Republicans were battling this pernicious scourge at every turn. Are they lacking education or courage?"

  2. "Will Christie do the heroic thing and veto the legislation...?"

    Fat chance.
