Brandon talks about what the legislation needs to become in order to bring the most benefit to NJ, how we can use this an an opportunity to create innovative policies to support small businesses, and ultimately what the benefit would be for the Jersey’s workforce and Jersey’s financial well being if the state passes a clean $15 Minimum Wage Bill.
