The latest version of a pay equity bill passed through the Assembly Labor Committee Monday, the Assembly appropriations Committee Thursday, and is headed to the full Assembly.  The Chair of the Assembly Labor Committee, Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri-Huttle, explains how the bill will prohibit unequal pay for "substantially similar work."

The governor has laid out his proposed budget, which includes his proposed tax increases. Michelle Siekerka, president of the New Jersey Business and Industry Association, and Analilia Mejia, director of New Jersey Working Families, disagree on whether this plan will benefit New Jerseyans.
