Minimum wage in Michigan bumped up again with the start of the New Year on Monday. For most workers, that means a jump from $8.90 an hour to $9.25. A group wants to put a measure on the November ballot that would drive that figure up to $12 by 2022, but business groups have expressed concerns.

This Week in Review, Weekend Edition host Rebecca Kruth and senior news analyst Jack Lessenberry discuss what might be best the move for the state.


They also talk about the new interim U.S. attorney for the state's Eastern district, the potential impact Attorney General Jeff Sessions' marijuana crackdown could have in Michigan, and Republican candidate Bob Young's decision to withdraw from the 2018 US Senate race.
