TRENTON - Gov. Chris Christie has rejected the minimum wage increase.

Christie said the economy was too weak to handle the proposed $1.25 increase all at once. Instead, he proposed hiking it by a dollar over the next three years.

Christie suggested adding more funding to the earned income tax credit, which targets the working poor.
