Gov. Quinn Pushes for Higher Minimum Wage


Governor Pat Quinn is vowing to make an increase in Illinois’s minimum wage a top priority in 2014.

 

Quinn called for boosting the wage from the current $8.25 an hour, up to $10 an hour, in his State of the State speech earlier this year. Legislation is pending, but hasn’t advanced very far.

 

Critics say raising the minimum wage will kill jobs in a state with high unemployment… but Quinn says that claim is simply not true.

 

The governor says the increase will reduce poverty and give workers at the low end of the scale more spending power.
