Today is the Day !!!


 
The minimum wage increase in Cook County starts today, July 1st
It’s going up to $10 an hour and will increase by a dollar every year to get to $13 an hour by 2020.

There are at least 50 cities, towns and villages that have said no to the pay raise and sick leave requirements, so they’re opting out of the deal passed by Cook County officials. Schiller Park has opted out.  
In Chicago, the minimum wage went up to $11 and hour, rising to $13 by 2019.
