Illinois Chamber Pushes Back Against $15

ILLINOIS (RFD) — The push back against the move to a $15 minimum wage continues. The Illinois Chamber of Commerce says they have a number of problems with the increase. Chamber CEO Todd Maisch says markets should determine wages and if lawmakers really do want to bump pay higher they need consider the needs and business realities in all parts of Illinois.

Maisch says that a regionalization of a minimum wage would be a good step along with a training wage for teenagers or a seasonal wage to cover summer workers.
