Quinn: Ill. minimum wage hike will create jobs
CHICAGO (AP) — Gov. Pat Quinn says raising the minimum wage from $8.25 to $10 per hour will be good for the economy and create jobs.
The Chicago Democrat proposed the 20 percent increase during his State of the State address Wednesday.
Republicans and business groups called the idea ill-advised and a job killer. They say businesses will leave Illinois if forced to pay more.
