Assembly Labor Committee Approves Employee Fair Wage Bills

Bills sponsored by Assembly Democrats Joann Downey, Pamela Lampitt, Gary Schaer, Eric Houghtaling, Daniel Benson, Wayne DeAngelo and Gordon Johnson

"This in turn will help reduce the foreclosures and short sales that are stifling the recovery of the housing sector in New Jersey."
