Quinn Still Pushing For Minimum Wage Hike

Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE [endif]--(Chicago, IL) -- Governor Quinn says lawmakers get paid to work and that's what he expects them to do when they return to Springfield for the veto session. That's next week but there isn't a whole lot on the docket. Quinn wants them to pass a bill to increase the minimum wage to ten-bucks-an-hour. He wants that to be his last hurrah as he wraps up his term in office, but the idea is not very popular in Springfield. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have been hesitant about supporting the raise.
