What was once a top priority for Assembly President Sheila Oliver and Democratic President Steve Sweeney, is now something they say they will push for later in the year. The Assembly passed Oliver’s bill last month 46-33 along party lines. which would have raised the minimum wage from $7.25 to $8.50. Governor Christie said he wouldn’t sign Oliver’s bill because it would keep adjusting bottom salaries every year based on movements in the consumer price index. Christie says the automatic increases would stifle economic growth.
