Poll: Majority of Respondents Say Minimum Wage Should be $10.00/Hour

A majority of Michigan voters favor increasing the state's minimum wage from $7.40 an hour to $10 an hour by 2016, according to a new poll.

The survey by Marketing Resource Group and Mitchell Research and Communications found that 58 percent of poll respondents favored raising the minimum wage and 38 percent were against it.

The poll also found that most voters feel the state is on the wrong track. When asked whether the state is on the right track, 43 percent said it is while 47 percent said it is not.

The phone survey of 600 potential voters was taken October 6-10. It has a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points.
