BUSINESS GROUPS ARE SEEKING CHANGES TO A MINIMUM WAGE PROPOSAL THAT PASSED THE SENATE…BUT GOVERNOR J-B PRITZKER IS URGING THE HOUSE TO PASS IT AS IS. 

 

THE CURRENT BILL RAISES THE MINIMUM WAGE OVER SIX YEARS UNTIL IT HITS 15 DOLLARS AN HOUR. GOVERNOR PRITZKER SAYS IT’S THE PRODUCT OF MANY TALKS.

 

 

MANY BUSINESS OWNERS WOULD LIKE TO SEE A SLOWER PHASE-IN SCHEDULE AND REGIONAL WAGE LEVELS SET FOR DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE STATE THAT MAY HAVE A LOWER COST OF LIVING.
