 The Democrat seeking to unseat Gov. Chris Christie will join others in calling for a higher minimum wage in New Jersey.

Barbara Buono and her running mate Milly Silva are slated to attend a news conference organized by Working Families United for New Jersey’s “Raise the Wage” campaign in Trenton Monday.

New Jersey voters will be asked in November to consider a constitutional amendment that would boost the minimum wage by $1 to $8.25 and link it to automatic annual adjustments to the Consumer Price Index.

Christie vetoed legislation that would have increased the wage by $1.25 and provide automatic yearly increases.

Christie offered to raise the wage by $1 per hour over three years instead.
