TRENTON, New Jersey: The New Jersey Senate Budget Committee voted to put a minimum wage increase on the ballot in November 2013. Senate President Stephen Sweeney put forth a resolution to let voters decide whether or not to raise minimum wage to $8.25 an hour and increase every year with inflation. Before the referendum goes on the ballot, the Senate and Assembly must also approve the resolution.
