The Illinois Senate Chamber is Backing bill for $15 Hourly Minimum Wage Within 6 Years

The Illinois State Senate voted to lift the bill of increasing minimum wages of low-income workers to $15 per hour within 6 years and they are going forward to their main campaign of electing new Democratic governor in major industrial state of America, which hasn’t increased its pay level in last ten years.

Gov. J.B. Pritzker, praised the Senate’s action to gradually increase minimum wages for low-income workers and celebrates the moving back from four-year policies of his Republican forerunners.

Pritzker told reporters that “if you live in this state and work hard, then you should be enough paid to get a roof over your head”. Pritzker fortified its statement that this increase will boost low-workers outside poverty.

Illinois is $1 higher than the federal minimum wage at $8.25. Senate Majority Leader Kimberly Lightford, plans to increase the minimum wage to $9.25 from $8.25 on Jan, 1.

Senator Jason Barickman said that “school will face an increase in payroll of $600,000 for as many as students it placed to work and also, these student workers will get no benefit from this wage increase if they have don’t have a job”.
