Minimum Wage in New Jersey
  • TRENTON – New Jersey’s minimum hourly wage will go up by $1 to $12 per hour, for most employees, on January 1, 2021.

  • The minimum hourly wage for employees of a small employer or those engaged in seasonal work will increase to $11.10, while employees who work on a farm for an hourly or piece-rate wage will see their minimum hourly wage increase to $10.44, both rising from $10.30.
