Gov. Pat Quinn is using the holiday weekend honoring Martin Luther King Jr. to continue pressing for raising Illinois’ minimum wage to at least $10. The Democratic governor said while visiting a Chicago church Sunday that raising the state’s minimum wage from $8.25 would be a key component in what he called the “war on poverty.” Republicans and business groups say raising the minimum wage kills jobs.
