New Jersey will become fourth state to raise minimum wage to $15


"It is a great day to make some history for New Jersey's working families," Murphy said. "And that's just what we're going to do. We've talked long enough about putting New Jersey on a responsible path to $15 an hour minimum wage. Today we start our way on this path."

The governor, Senate President Steve Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin announced a deal on the higher wage last month following yearslong efforts by left-leaning groups and unions in the state to raise the wage.

"The amount of job loss that we are going to see among small businesses will be tragic," state Sen. Declan O'Scanlon said in a statement.

Trump to sign EO to purchase more iron and steel on federal level


The order directs agency heads to “encourage recipients of new federal financial assistance awards to use, to the greatest extent practical, iron, steel, aluminum, cement and other manufacturing products produced in the United States,” White House trade adviser Peter Navarro told reporters on a conference call.

Navarro said the measure will “reinforce this administration's ‘Buy American’ preferences” by “providing strong presidential guidance.” But it does not include enforcement mechanisms or specific purchasing targets.

The first thing to understand about the proposed “Green New Deal” is that the first New Deal not only failed to end the Great Depression but made it more severe and longer-lasting. Its only “success” was in creating endless patronage opportunities and levers of #political bribery and #extortion for the #Democratic Party, opportunities that the #Republican Party happily embraced whenever it could to expand its own power and wealth in the succeeding decades. The proposed #GreenNewDeal would do the same, only many orders of magnitude worse.
