Democratic leaders want to raise New Jersey's minimum wage to $15 an hour.

Assembly Leader Vincent Prieto on Thursday will be joined in Trenton by Assemblyman John Wisniewski and state Sen. Ray Lesniak, who plan to sponsor the legislation.

The minimum wage in New Jersey is currently $8.38 an hour, or just over $17,400 a year for a full-time employee.
