New Jersey's minimum wage increases in 2014
About a quarter-million workers in New Jersey will get a raise when the calendar changes to 2014.
The state's minimum wage is increasing from 7.25 to 8.25 per hour.
The change also guarantees future wage hikes as the cost of living rises.
Voters approved the increase in November.
A dozen other states are also raising their minimum wage rates tomorrow.
