This bill raises the minimum wage in the State of New Jersey to $15.00 per hour and indexes that minimum to increases in the consumer price index. Specifically, the bill provides that, beginning on the January 1 next following the bill's effective date, employers must pay their employees $15.00 per hour for 40 hours of working time in any week and 1 1/2 times the employee's regular hourly wage for each hour of working time in excess of 40 hours in any week, with certain exceptions. The bill also provides that, on the September 30 next following the date on which the minimum wage rate is set at $15.00 per hour, and on September 30 of each subsequent year, the State minimum wage rate will be increased, effective the following January 1, by any increase during the one year prior to that September 30 in the consumer price index for all urban wage earners and clerical workers (CPI-W) as calculated by the federal government.
