LANSING (WKZO) -- Raise Michigan is asking to change their proposed ballot language to increase the state's minimum wage.

The organization filed paperwork Monday with the Secretary of State's office to change their proposal seeking a $9.50 an hour minimum wage to $10.10 an hour.  They are also extending by one year the timing to increase the wage, and now want it to be at that top level by 2017.

Michigan's minimum wage is currently $7.40 an hour.
