New Jersey’s minimum wage will rise from $1.13 to $14.13, the state announced Monday.
The increase is part of a planned increase stemming from a 2019 bill signed by Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy. The law establishes a minimum wage of $15 an hour to be reached by 2024.
The new pay of $14.13 an hour, however, will not affect all workers. Employers with fewer than six workers and seasonal businesses will increase their minimum wage to $12.93 an hour from $11.90. The minimum wage for agricultural workers will increase from $11.05 to $12.01 an hour.
The minimum wage for tipped workers will rise to $5.26 an hour.
