Minimum Wage Issue Could Head To Voters
(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.
