Governor Quinn Statement on President Obama's Call to Increase the Minimum Wage


Location: Chicago, IL

Governor Quinn today issued the below statement regarding President Obama's call to increase the national minimum wage:

"President Obama and I agree -- no one should work 40 hours a week and live in poverty.

"Increasing the minimum wage will ensure that workers get a fair day's wage for a fair day's work, while fighting poverty and bolstering our economy.

"Earlier this year, I called for increasing the minimum wage in Illinois to at least $10 an hour and I will continue to work with members of the General Assembly to make it happen."
