MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A new poll says nearly three of every four Wisconsin registered voters support raising the state's minimum wage.
The quarterly Economic Scorecard from UW-Milwaukee shows that 70 percent of voters favor automatic hikes in the minimum wage according to inflation -- thus leaving politics out of it.
When asked what the minimum wage should be, the most common answer was $10 an hour. It's at $7.25 now.
The UWM poll surveyed 526 Wisconsin registered voters by phone from June 2nd through 5th. The margin of error was just over plus-or-minus 4 percent.
