Fulop and the ‘Fight for Fifteen’

As mayor angles for gubernatorial run, he pushes support of Working Family initiatives


On Tuesday, the national day of action in the “Fight for Fifteen” movement, Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop and members of the city council passed a resolution calling on the New Jersey legislature and Governor Chris Christie to bump the state minimum wage from the current $8.38 to $15 per hour.

The move was supported by New Jersey Working Families, a grassroots political organization dedicated to improving workers rights and conditions in the state. This year, one of the main missions for the group is the fight to boost the minimum wage.

“In New Jersey, a minimum-wage worker has to work more than 13 hours a day, 7 days a week just to afford the cost of living,” said Fulop at a Tuesday rally before the council meeting where the resolution was passed. “That’s wrong. We absolutely must raise the minimum wage.”
