New Direction New Jersey, a non-profit organization tied to Gov. Phil Murphy, is launching a new television ad today that touts Murphy’s first-year accomplishments and calls on the Legislature to enact a $15 minimum wage.
“Governor Murphy and his allies have already brought much-needed change to New Jersey,” said Brendan Gill, a senior advisor to the 501(c)4. “In less than a year, they have put our state on a path to fully fund our public schools, enacted the nation’s strongest equal pay law, lowered health insurance costs over 9%, and led the way nationally with gun safety measures. Now, it is finally time to ensure hundreds of thousands of working families in New Jersey a living wage and raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour.”
The shows New Jerseyans walking alongside Murphy and features the governor’s voice.
“In Jersey, for too long, too little got done,” and then launches into progressive accomplishments such as funding public schools, middle class tax relief, stronger equal pay laws, funding Planned Parenthood, restoring homestead rebates and lowering health insurance costs.”
This is the second TV ad aired by New Direction New Jersey.
