TRENTON, N.J. (CBS) —  The New Year is bringing bigger paychecks for some people in our area.  New Jersey’s minimum wage will increase by one dollar to $13 per hour Saturday.

In Delaware, the minimum wage is about to increase from $9.25 an hour to $10.50 an hour.

Both states plan to eventually phase in a $15 dollar-an-hour minimum wage in the coming years.
