Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean Jr. stated the following in response to the Senate President’s release on the state’s minimum wage:
“It is ironic that the Senate President today criticized a delay to increase New Jersey’s minimum wage to $8.50 per hour, when Senate Democrats last month tabled a compromise by Senator Joe Pennacchio to responsibly increase the minimum wage to $8.50 per hour.
“If Senator Sweeney’s argument is ‘other states are doing it,’ then shouldn’t he and his party apply it to other New Jersey issues? For example, since other states allow voters to decide on same sex marriage, shouldn’t New Jersey? Is the Senate President saying that we should pump our own gas, because it is permitted by 48 other states?
