Contrary to the claims of big business lobbies, many small business owners support raising the minimum wage. Not only is it the right thing to do, it’s a key step toward economic recovery. Every extra dollar in the pockets of low wage workers will get pumped right back into the economy, so everybody wins.
Produced by Telequest, Inc of Princeton NJ for the NJ Main Street Alliance (a project of NJ Citizen Action). The goal is to inform voters that they can raise the minimum wage in NJ on November 5, 2013 by voting YES on ballot question #2.
