Assembly Republican Press Release -
Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick, R-Union, Morris and Somerset, said legislation (A-3912) that allows towns to determine their own minimum wage is bad public policy.
“The new bill to allow each municipality to act as a separate state is very bad public policy. I highly doubt that even the most ardent Democrats would ever vote for this bill, but the message that New Jersey is even considering this anti-business policy can damage our economic future.
“This bill may appeal to the Democratic base, but business leaders who read about the proposal may speculate that the Legislature will continue to allow each municipality to set its own local rules for businesses.
“New Jersey is already known has a high tax, highly regulated anti-business state. Increasing local regulation is dangerous public policy.”
