Letter from Illinois Voters: Raise The Illinois Minimum Wage!
People who work for a living should be able to live off of their wages. The Illinois minimum wage needs to be adequate enough for working people to live on—and indexed to inflation so it doesn't fall in value every year.
The proposed Illinois Minimum Wage Bill (SB 1565) calls for increasing the minimum wage by 50 cents an hour plus inflation every year for over four years until it reaches $10.65 an hour. Going forward, the minimum wage would then be adjusted each year for inflation.
Raising the minimum wage is an important step toward an economy that works for everyone, not just the richest 1%. That's why our elected officials need to stand with us in raising the federal minimum wage.
