Minimum Wage Issue Could Head To Voters

May 21, 2014


(Springfield, IL)  --  Voters could be weighing in on whether minimum wage workers should be paid more money.  Lawmakers are trying to get a referendum on the November ballot.  It would ask people to vote up or down on paying ten-bucks-an-hour to workers who are older than 18.  Republicans don't like the proposal because it would be a non-binding referendum, which means lawmakers won't be required to do what the voters want.  State representatives cleared the bill yesterday and now it's headed to the Senate.
