The Illinois gubernatorial candidates are talking about whether the minimum wage should be raised. What do you think?

“With transportation, food, bills, etc. I think minimum wage should be raised. Minimum wage currently isn’t enough to raise a family.”

Caterine Celada, Princeton

“I think that if they raise minimum wage, it will be devastating to small businesses.”

Jamie Bickett, Princeton

“I think that they should raise the minimum wage because of the cost of living. Your bills are more than the pay.”

Cathy King, Princeton

“In today’s economy I understand cost of living is higher but I do think raising the minimum wage would have a negative affect on small businesses.”

Abbie Cochran, Princeton

“I feel minimum wage should be raised due to the strenuous jobs people do and the hours they put in. The cost of living is going up.”

Jackie Massa, Princeton
