Democrats, who control the statehouse, and liberal groups have put the legislation at the center of their agenda. The Legislature sent Christie the measure in June. Democratic leaders have said theyll pursue a constitutional amendment to raise the minimum wage without the need for Christies approval. The governors actions have only served to temporarily thwart a unified effort to raise New Jersey families and provide a much needed boost to our economy. said Analilia Mejia, director of the left-leaning group NJ Working Families. Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto said lawmakers will put the issue to voters in a ballot question. Its too late to make this years ballot; the soonest the measure could appear before voters would be 2017. I am confident that New Jersey residents will eventually right this wrong, he said. Voters last approved raising the wage in 2013, from $7.25 to $8.25. The federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour. Mike Rothwell, the owner of the market where Christie vetoed the legislation, said he employs 160 people 45 full time and 115 part time, of whom 15 percent earn the minimum wage. He cut hours in response to the 2013 minimum wage hike, he said, and would have to again, if the wage were raised.

Its a tough disease. Whether it be for substance abuse or sex offenses, Vermonts correctional philosophy is that it doesnt do much good to provide inmates with treatment or prepare them for the outside world until they near the end of their sentences. A targeted intervention closer to the time of release is more effective, said Menard, who in September moved up through DOCs ranks to the Commissioners Office. Since the offenders in Michigan are serving lengthy sentences, they have access to even fewer services than prisoners in Vermont. Corliss, the convicted murderer, told me that shortly after he was sentenced 20 years ago, he asked about getting into anger management programming. I was told that I wouldnt be eligible for another three decades, he said. Unfortunately, Vermont has never been equipped to deal with long-term prisoners. Ronald Gagne, 49, is six years into a 16-year sentence for aggravated assault and unlawful restraint. Vermont doesnt want to help you change, he said. Vermont wants to warehouse you. Inmates refer to being in Michigan as dead time. People are sleeping all day here, because they dont have anything to do, Fleming-Pancione said.
