LANSING (WKZO) -- Michigan voters are in the mood to pay the lowest-paid people in the state more money.  A recent poll by Marketing Resource Group and Mitchell Research and Communications puts support for an increase in the minimum wage to ten-dollars an hour at 58-percent, with 38-percent opposed.  Democrats earning less than 30-thousand dollars a year are most in favor.
