Governor: Minimum Wage Needs to be Raised
Governor: Minimum Wage Needs to be Raised

Governor Pat Quinn is again making a push for raising Illinois’ minimum wage.
Quinn has been visiting black churches in the Chicago area as he ramps up his
2014 re-election bid. On Sunday, he told congregants at Missionary Baptist
Fellowship Church that helping those who live in poverty is a principle as old
as the Bible.  He wants the minimum wage raised to $10 an hour.
