New Jersey becomes 4th state to approve $15 hourly wage

ELIZABETH, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey became the latest state on Monday to boost its hourly minimum wage to $15 after Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy signed into law a measure phasing in the higher rate over five years.

Murphy signed the bill alongside Lt. Gov. Sheila Oliver and Democratic legislative leaders at a raucous event in Elizabeth where advocates cheered, "Ready for 15," carried banners with their union affiliation and applauded loudly once the bill was signed

Why don't farm workers, tip workers and seasonal workers deserve a living wage? I suspect the definition of farm, tip and seasonal is very expansive.

I believe the difficulty is that they aren't covered under the National Labor Relations Act.

Tipped restaurant workers are exempt because the Nat'l Restaurant Association has fought to keep things that way for a long time.

You may recognize one of the recent heads of this lobby, his name was Herman Cain.
