CHICAGO - On the eve of Labor Day, the fight to raise minimum wage from $8.25 to $10 an hour is heating back up in Illinois.

Governor Pat Quinn is taking steps to bump pay this weekend.

The change is one of his top priorities, made public in Quinn’s State of the State address this year.

He says the paycheck boost will help fight poverty and curb crime, by ensuring everyone has fair pay.

Illinois minimum wage hasn't been increased since 2010.

But some business owners fear with strapped resources, they won't be able afford the rise in wages.
