    NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ—Thousands of workers in New Brunswick will get a raise, thanks to the 61% of New Jersey voters who approved a constitutional amendment to increase the minimum wage in yesterday's election.

    Results provided by Assistant City Clerk Leslie Zeledon show that the question passed by an even larger margin here in New Brunswick, where 80% of voters supported the $1 wage hike, which will automatically rise to account for inflation in future years.
