NJLA Statement on the Minimum Wage Legislation

The New Jersey Library Association has concerns about raising the minimum wage to $15.00 an hour for student pages.  All libraries use student pages to do tasks such as shelving and organizing books and other library materials. These tasks are essential to the maintenance of the library but do not require additional education or advanced skills.   These page positions are short term or seasonal positions. Students often take these positions to see if they would be interested in a career in library science in the future.
