1950Brutus - Illlinois Dem leaders urge minimum wage hike - Quincy, IL News -
AND for every hour paid at the higher rate is 5 cents more in tax revenues. Doesn't sound like much but wouldn't you like to have a nickel for every additional 5 cents they get.
pjohnf - Illlinois Dem leaders urge minimum wage hike - Quincy, IL News -
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. And that way the unions will have more money to give to the democrats. The vicious money laundering cycle continues.

1950Brutus - Fast food workers vow civil disobedience - Quincy, IL News -
It seems it would be difficult to pay "disorderly conduct" fines when making minimum wage. Or maybe there is a government program for this?? Comparing this movement to the civil rights movement is laughable. If they want to be taken seriously they need to drop this.
