Four years ago, voters had no good reason to re-elect Wall Street wizard Jon Corzine but today, Bush Republican Chris Christie deserves to be fired. If you do not insure those events because Democrat Barbara Buono is waging a poor campaign, then you are more guilty of what comes next because voters have to take responsibility for what occurs in a democracy.
On Nov. 5, New Jersey voters will decide whether to increase the minimum wage from $7.25 to $8.25 with automatic annual increases based on the Consumer Price Index built into an amendment of the state Constitution. While numerous polls show that a majority of New Jersey voters support raising the minimum wage, greedy Republican and business groups have vowed to campaign against the proposed amendment. “People all over the state, what they are seeing is: Everything is going up,” said U.S. Senator-elect Cory Booker. “Rent is going up, gas is going up. Everything is going up but their wages.”
