CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - The city's minimum wage is going up Friday.

Starting hourly pay has to be at least $10.50 now.

It's part of a 2014 ordinance raising the city's minimum wage to $13 an hour by 2019.

More than a quarter million workers will see a raise because of the higher minimum wage Friday.
