  • Income inequality is what Democrats do best

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog You may’ve seen that new study out this week claiming there are over 2 million New Jerseyans living in poverty. Legal Services of New Jersey adjusted for cost of living in arriving at its shocking conclusion, noting how a family of four earning between $64,238 to $73,371 isn’t able to […]

  • Bergen Democrats’ minimum wage hypocrisy on full display in LD36

    By Matthew Gilson | The Save Jersey Blog Mondays can be a little harsh and humorless, Save Jerseyans, so if you need a little pick-me-up, please enjoy the Democrat Party’s latest hypocrisy courtesy of the LD36/Bergen County!  Last month, the Bergen County Democratic ticket attended a rally in force for the “Fight for 15!” minimum […]

  • Liberals continue to lie about the minimum wage

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog We’ve talked a lot about the minimum wage here over the years but, since our neighbor to the north (New York) approved a $15 minimum wage at the end of next week for fast food workers, it’s time to revisit the biggest flaw in their logic. Can you […]

  • Hypocrisy Alert: #FightFor15… for $12.50/hr???

    By Cody McLaughlin | The Save Jersey Blog Well, Save Jerseyans, if you’ve ever read anything written by me before, you already know that I detest hypocrisy, in all its forms, more than just about anything in the realm of politics. It shouldn’t have a place in our system, but sadly it is all too pervasive. So, what […]

  • Christie to Chamber: “I’m tired of hearing about the minimum wage”

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Gov. Chris Christie was in one of his blunt moods at Tuesday’s U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform’s 15th Annual Legal Reform Summit in Washington, D.C., Save Jerseyans, letting the audience gathered to hear his keynote address know, in no uncertain terms, that he’s “tired” of minimum wage proponents behaving […]

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog AFP-NJ supporters rallied outside of Trenton AFL-CIO headquarters on a beautiful spring Saturday, Save Jerseyans, and their message was simple: New Jersey’s minimum wage hike is holding everyone back.

    By Joe Sinagra | The Save Jersey Blog The minimum wage was a big issue when I ran for office in 2005, Save Jerseyans, long before last fall’s travesty became law. I suggested at an editorial review board that the minimum wage be eliminated. My opponent wanted to create a livable wage of $17. Why stop there . […]

  • The Real Hunger Games

    By Joe Sinagra | The Save Jersey Blog Let’s hope 2014 turns out better for the U.S.A. than 2013; an estimated 14.5 million American households had difficulty providing enough food for their families over the last year, Save Jerseyans. In seven million of those homes, at least one member of the family had to skip meals or eat […]

  • A Minimum Wage for Minimum Achievement

    By Joe Sinagra | The Save Jersey Blog I am sick and tired of hearing the whiners complain, Save Jerseyans, particularly about how Wal-Mart, McDonalds and the like don’t pay enough. That is precisely why we supposedly have a free market; if you don’t like the job you are in at the moment, you are “free” to get […]

  • How High Will NJ Minimum Wage Go?

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog The only honest answer is “who knows,” Save Jerseyans, after our fellow voters adopted an insane ballot measure to constitutionally tether New Jersey’s minimum wage to the Consumer Price Index (CPI) on November 5th. Nine other U.S. states — Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Missouri, Montana, Ohio, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington — […]

  • New Jersey Governor Loses On Minimum Wage

    By Mark Lagerkvist | New Jersey Watchdog This is the one political contest Chris Christie lost in Tuesday’s election. By a 61-39 percent spread, New Jersey voters passed a constitutional amendment[1] that will raise the minimum wage for workers by a dollar an hour – from $7.25 to $8.25.[2] “That is a stupid way to do it,” Christie told […]
