Under the law, the “effective minimum wage rate” for any given year covered by this chart is the highest of the federal minimum wage rate, the minimum wage rate set by New Jersey statute, or a minimum wage  rate  adjusted  to  account  for  increases  in  the  Consumer  Price  Index  (CPI). The  minimum  wage  rates  listed  in  the  chart  through  2023  are  the  true  effective  minimum  wage  rates  for  those  years. However, the minimum wage rates listed for 2024 and the following years reflect only the NJ statutory rates (and, thus, are estimates), in that we do not yet know whether either the federal minimum wage rate or the CPI-adjusted rates will exceed the NJ statutory rates for those years.Cash wage plus tips must equal at least the State minimum wage.As of 11/1/2020, Long-Term Care Facility Direct Care Staff Members are paid $3.00 above the State minimum hourly wage 	and increases accordingly anytime the State minimum wage increases. 	Overtime at the time and a half regular rate is due with the exception of certain truck drivers, loaders, helpers and mechanics involving vehicles weighing in excess of 10,000 lbs. GVW and 	 	who travel 	interstate.
