Raise the wage in New Jersey!
Chris Christie just sank to a new low. He vetoed the legislature's minimum wage hike and took money directly out of the pockets of half a million of New Jersey's poorest residents. Christie and his friends in the business lobby may think that $1.25 an hour is just too rich a raise, but a whopping 82% of New Jerseyans say he's dead wrong.
Fortunately, he's not the last word. The legislature has a chance to override Christie's veto or to let the voters approve a hike at the ballot box in November.
Tell the legislature to raise the wage now!
