"With the worst recession in a generation still being felt across the nation, state and federal leaders are focused on getting their economies moving again while helping working families make ends meet.  Raising the minimum wage is a key strategy for doing both and should be part of an economic recovery agenda.  Low-income families spend all of their additional income on basic necessities in their local communities. A raise in the minimum wage will increase consumer spending and create a higher demand for goods. This in turn will increase business profits, create jobs and assist in the overall economic recovery. A robust minimum wage is a key building block of sustainable economic recovery."  http://raiseillinois.com/
