Business Group Disappointed in Process To Bring Perspectives To Table For Minimum Wage Hike

ILLINOIS (RFD) — An advocacy group for business owners in Illinois disappointed with the process to bring a gradual increase to the minimum wage in Illinois.

The National Federation of Independent Business believes they do not need government to tell them what their minimum wage should be. Mark Grant is the Director for the Illinois NFIB.

Grant says there was very little consideration from small business owners.

Grant indicates the restaurant industry was the only group for the proposal but he points out, they kept their provision to pay their servers a wage below minimum wage plus the tips they make.
