NJ wage hike official

With Governor Cody's signature, a $2 wage increase (spread across the next 18 months) became law in New Jersey. As noted previously, this is NJ's first wage increase in a decade, and puts them well ahead of minimum wage here in PA. Similar legislation has been discussed in Harrisburg, in addition to the more limited measure under discussion by Philadelphia City Council -- maybe they'll be spurred to speed things up by the prospect of stiffer competition from across the river.
