(TRENTON) - Members of the Assembly Democratic leadership - Speaker Sheila Y. Oliver (D-Essex), Majority Leader Louis D. Greenwald (D-Camden) and Budget Committee Chair Vincent Prieto (D-Hudson) - on Tuesday issued a multimedia package in which they announced the Assembly will focus much of its December activity to an extensive job creation and economic development initiative.
The multimedia package consists of a video of the news conference announcement by Assembly Democratic leadership and audio of same.
The December effort will build off the final legislative approval (A-2162) recently given by the Assembly to increase New Jersey's minimum wage to $8.50 per hour and adjust it annually in order to create a more livable wage for working class residents and in turn boost economic activity.
