President Barack Obama is in Ann Arbor, where he'll push his proposal to increase the federal minimum wage.

The President stopped at Zingerman's on his way to the University of Michigan's Intramural Building, where he is said to have ordered a #2 Rueben sandwich.

The President backs a proposal to gradually hike the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $10.10 an hour.

WEMU's Andrew Cluley is covering the President's visit.  Stay tuned for details throughout the afternoon.
