LANSING (WKZO) -- Michigan Democrat and former Battle Creek Congressman Mark Schauer is proposing a raise to the state's minimum wage.

Schauer, who is likely to face Governor Rick Snyder in the 2014 election, has proposed raising minimum wage to $99.25 an hour over the next three years.  He says hiking the current $7.40 minimum wage would be top priority if he were elected governor.

The state's minimum wage was last increased in 2008 and is slightly higher than the $7.25 federal minimum wage.
