Video: Booker and Oliver join Buono in support of raising minimum wage

Two Democratic U.S. Senate opponents, Newark Mayor Cory Booker and Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver, joined Senator Barbara Buono to kick off "Raise the Wage" campaign in East Orange. The event was sponsored by Working Families United for New Jersey. It was intended to gain attention for a November ballot question that lets voters to decide whether to increase the wage from its current $7.25 – the federal minimum – to $8.25. The ballot initiative would also put a clause in the state Constitution that would increase the wage every year based on the Consumer Price Index. (Video by Andre Malok/The Star-Ledger)
