Illinois minimum wage
But, Ill. governor-elect says it must come with other reforms.
Illinois Democrat wants to experience life on $8.25 per hour minimum wage.
Proposal would make the wage $10 per hour by 2015.
The legislation now goes to Gov. Pat Quinn, who supports an increase.
U.S. Senate nominee sponsors a bill to raise minimum wage in Illinois to $10 an hour, but under a specific age restriction.
Governor says it’s time to go from $8.25 to $10 per hour.
How much is too much for minimum wage earners?
The recession, high gasoline prices and a series of increases to Illinois’ minimum wage contributed to the move.
