Gov. Pat Quinn approves minimum wage ballot question

In November, people in Illinois will be asked whether they think the state’s minimum wage should be increased to $10 an hour.

Governor Quinn approved the non-binding advisory referendum yesterday.

Quinn’s republican opponent, Bruce Rauner, has said he would support an increased federal or higher state minimum wage rate, if several pro-business changes are made.

The minimum wage in Illinois is currently $8.25.
