    Makes all kinds of differences if you're talking North or South Jersey. Union or non-union. Shift differential.

    Lots of variables so no one answer might work for you.

    But around how much is the minimum pay?

    I think you're missing my point. Minimum wage in NJ is $8.44, but is that what CNAs make in a unionized major hospital in Newark or a small non-union Catholic-run facility in Camden county. Or a private day care center near Trenton?

    Staying competitive within a community is critical for many employers, but for some, their benefits package compensate (or NOT) for their offered wages.
