1950Brutus - Illlinois Dem leaders urge minimum wage hike - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com

pjohnf - Illlinois Dem leaders urge minimum wage hike - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Durbin, Quinn and Schakowsky are pushing the minimum wage increase as a payoff to their union buddies because as the minimum goes up the unions can use the increase to support increases for their members.
