These are not high school kids on summer jobs: 91 percent of them are working adults and nearly half of them are over age 40, according to New Jersey Policy Perspective . Raise the minimum wage. Yes, again | Editorial More than 60 percent of those who would benefit are full-timers. Half of them have attended or graduated from college, more than half are women, and 3-in-10 are parents. As the saying goes, these people aren’t looking for handout, they’re looking for a hand up. People who put in a full day should be able to afford food, a place to live, transportation and clothing without having to rely on public safety nets and charity. A study from Alliance for a Just Society last October found that New Jersey’s current minimum wage of $8.38 is 42 percent of the $19.76 needed to qualify as a “livable wage” for a single adult. That means a minimum wage worker needs to clock 94 hours a week to live in reasonable comfort. Major retailers and restaurant chains like Walmart, Gap, McDonald’s, Starbucks, and Ikea have raised their minimums, because they know something that Christie and some business leaders don’t understand: While cost certainty is important, success is also dependent on a healthy, self-sustaining workforce. They also know this in New York State, where the minimum wage will rise to $15 by 2018.
