Rauner Appears To Modify Stance On Minimum Wage

A Republican candidate for governor may be modifying his views on the minimum wage. 


Bruce Rauner has been taking some heat after media outlets discovered remarks he made to an Alton radio station last month, saying he would advocate to lower the state’s minimum wage by a dollar an hour, so that it would equal the rate set by federal law. 


But in an interview this week with the Southern Illinoisan newspaper, Rauner did not rule out either increasing or decreasing the minimum wage… saying that any change up or down should be part of a comprehensive effort to improve the state’s business climate.
