No 15 Dollar Minimum Wage In Illinois
(Springfield, IL) — There won’t be a 15 dollar-an-hour minimum wage in Illinois anytime soon. The woman who authored the latest 15 dollar-an-hour law, state Senator Kimberly Lightford, over the weekend said she doesn’t have the votes to get the proposal through the Illinois Capitol. Advocates have been demanding a higher base-wage for years, but business groups say a 15 dollar-an-hour wage would kill job creation in the state.
