AmericaJR’s Jason Rzucidlo was LIVE at Wayne State University where Detroit’s own Lily Tomlin and fellow actress Jane Fonda spoke about raising Michigan’s minimum wage to $12 per hour. The stars from the 1980 film “9 to 5” and the new Netflix series “Grace and Frankie” spoke before a crowd of 150 inside the general lectures building on Thursday afternoon. The Restaurant Opportunities Center, better known as ROC United, is hoping to get the $12 minimum wage increase proposal on the 2018 midterm election ballot. Tomlin also spoke about growing up in Detroit, graduating from Cass Technical High School and attending Wayne State University.
