Labor group sues Gov. Scott Walker over state's minimum wage
Initially, the group filed a complaint with the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development. The D.W.D. responded, saying there is no reason to believe $7.25 is not a living wage. Raise Wisconsin says they asked for documents proving this, and the department only referenced a report from the Wisconsin Restaurant Association.
The Wisconsin Restaurant Association endorses Governor Walker in the November 2014 election. It's CEO told CBS the Raise Wisconsin lawsuit is a political move because Democrat Mary Burke supports a minimum wage increase.
Monday, Governor Scott Walker dismissed the suit, saying it has nothing to do with actually raising the minimum wage, and is instead a publicity stunt timed to coincide with the election.
