Minimum wage battle brewing

Fight for $15 heads to capitol

SPRINGFIELD -- Democrats are ramping up a statewide campaign to garner support for a $15 minimum wage. 

Governor Rauner's office says he is reviewing the bill and would be open to a wage increase if it came with reforms to worker's compensation or cuts to costly regulations. 

A House bill heads to a full vote early next month.
