Sen. Jones to Ask for Minimum Pay Raise

State Senator Rick Jones
State Senator Rick Jones

Republican state Senator Rick Jones of Grand Ledge is getting a bill ready to increase Michigan's minimum wage to eight-dollars-15-cents an hour.  Jones tells Lansing's MIRS News that he's seeking to halt a ballot proposal with his bill and believes the grassroots effort will cause restaurants to go out of business immediately.  That initiative wants a ten-dollar-ten-cent an hour minimum wage over time.  In 2006, state lawmakers approved hiking the minimum wage as labor unions were working on a petition drive to force the issue.
