ICYMI: NJ Working Families First 100 Day Victories

What an amazing 100 days. Wednesday, April 25th, marked Governor Phil Murphy’s 100th Day in Office and working families everyone are reaping the benefits.

Together with a progressive governor, we are turning the page on the disastrous Christie administration and every pro-working families policy they sought to dismantle.

New Jersey has really hit the ground running in the past 100 days, and we have a lot to be proud of. Here are some of the First 100 Day Highlights:

  • Gov. Murphy signed an executive order to restored $7.45 million in funding to Planned Parenthood and other women’s health care facilities and expanded Medicaid coverage for family planning services for families making up to 200% of the federal poverty level.
  • Signed into law the nation’s strongest equal pay law
  • Made New Jersey the 12th state to implement Automatic Voter Registration to expand access to voting.
  • New Jersey joined the States for Gun Safety Coalition with governors of New York, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Delaware, and Puerto Rico to create regional solutions for gun violence.
  • Statewide Earned Sick Days passed the State Legislature and now only awaits the Governor’s signature

Governor Phil Murphy has shown that he is with us, but there is still a fight ahead in the halls of the statehouse. In order to take back our state, we must fight for a clean $15 minimum wage, stronger wage theft protections, and public investments that put workers first.

The Fight for $15 is within reach, but we need your help!
