Protesters March Outside Topinka Headquarters

Governor Rod Blagojevich proposed the one-dollar-an-hour increase after winning last week's Democratic primary.

Topinka has said the increase to seven-dollars-and-fifty-cents an hour would cost the state jobs.

Topinka campaign spokesman Dave Loveday says the protesters should take their case to lawmakers in Springfield.
