TRENTON – Gov. Chris Christie has rejected the Legislature’s minimum wage hike proposal, according to a published report.
The Associated Press is reporting the governor favors a $1 phased-in raise.
The Legislature’s proposal has been sitting on the governor’s desk since lawmakers passed the $1.25 hike in recent weeks. It was thought unlikely that the governor, who had been critical of the bill’s annual cost of living increase, would support the proposal.
Christie’s office did not immediately respond to comment to confirm the report.

"During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die."- Nelson Mandela
