ILLINOIS (WTHI) – The fight to increase minimum wage continues in Illinois. Governor Pat Quinn is now asking state voters to weigh in on the issue.

Quinn signed House Bill 3814 today. The bill places an advisory question on the November ballot, asking if minimum wage for those over 18 should be raised to $10 by January 1, 2015.

Minimum wage in Illinois is currently $8.25.

Quinn says placing this question on the ballot will give voters a chance to send a clear signal to lawmakers.
