$15 an Hour Minimum Wage Becomes Law in Illinois

SPRINGFIELD (RFD) — The push to $15 an hour is now the law in Illinois. Democrat Governor JB Pritzker signed the new minimum wage bill today. Pritzker says he’s proud to be able to follow up on a major campaign promise and give one point four million workers in Illinois a wage they can live on.

Illinois’s minimum wage will increase by a dollar next year and settle to $15 an hour in six years.
