LANSING, MI (WTVB) - A new poll shows that 60% of the Michigan’s population could support an increase in the state’s minimum wage to $10.10 an hour.  A group that wants to put the question on the November ballot has just received approval of their petition language from the State Board of Canvassers and plans to begin training petitioners, and sending them out to get signatures this weekend.

Meredith Loomis Quinlan with Michigan United says the goal is to get over 300,000 signatures by the end of March. They will launch the effort state-wide tomorrow.
