From now until September 7, 2008, the New Jersey Minimum Wage Advisory Commission is seeking written, public comments concerning the adequacy of New Jersey’s minimum wage. The Commission annually evaluates the adequacy of the state’s minimum wage, and then makes a formal recommendation to the Legislature as to whether any minimum wage increase is necessary. 

As noted above, following last year’s review, the Commission recommended a minimum wage increase from $7.15 to $8.25 per hour, which the legislature has, to date, declined to enact.
