Governor Phil Murphy said on January 31 that minimum wage talks remain at the "conceptual level" as he starts to negotiate with Democratic leaders in the state Legislature on the specifics of how to gradually raise the state's hourly base pay to $15.

Murphy reiterated that he supports an incremental increase to $15 an hour that is free of exemptions for any workers. Senate President Steve Sweeney is considering exemptions for farmworkers and teenagers, among others.

Democratic leaders, including Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin, are all on board with a gradual bump in the minimum wage - which is currently $8.60 - to $15 an hour. In addition to figuring out which sectors to exempt, if any, they will need to work out how long before the $15 an hour is fully phased in.
