On Tuesday, New Jersey voters approved a Constitutional amendment which will increase the state’s minimum wage to $8.25 per hour on January 1, 2014 and will tie future annual increases to increases in the consumer price index for all urban wage earners and clerical workers.  As we discussed here, however, the amendment does not provide a mechanism for reducing the minimum wage in years in which the economy regresses.

Future blogs will discuss the impact of this increase on other wage and hour issues.
