CHICAGO -- Minimum wage workers in the Windy City could start making more money. A task force was appointed by Chicago's mayor.

It recommended minimum wage gradually be increased to $13/hour over the next four years. The task force also supports increasing wages for tipped employees from $4.95/hour to $5.95/hour over the next two years.

Governor Quinn has already signed legislation to place a question on the November ballot asking voters if the state's minimum wage should be increased to $10/hour.
