Alderman Randy Scannell will bring the issue in front of the Green Bay City Council tonight, asking for an advisory referendum to be placed on the November ballot.
"For me, I believe that minimum wage would be one of the biggest things we can do to raise and strengthen our economy. I think that would make a big difference," Scannell said. "I know there are those that believe more in a trickle down theory of strong economy. I believe more in a boost up. That would do a lot more."
The current state minimum wage is set at $7.25 per hour. Only the State Legislature can make the change.
