Show & Tell: Steve Fulop talks about raising the minimum wage for municipal employees in Jersey City

Steve Fulop is mayor of Jersey City. 

He and the city council will raise the minimum wage for municipal employees
to $17 an hour this month, a $2-an-hour increase.

“Prioritizing workers and families most impacted by the pandemic, we’re increasing the minimum wage not only to show our appreciation to our dedicated employees, but I hope our efforts will also encourage other leaders on all levels of government to make the same considerations for their low-wage workforce. We are raising salaries for hundreds of hardworking residents and community members to provide their families with a financial boost during these uncertain times and for future planning.”
