Illinois Minimum Wage Debate Picks Up Steam


The debate over Illinois’s minimum wage is heating up as an issue in the race for Illinois governor.

 

Bruce Rauner is now disavowing the statement he made last month… calling for the state’s minimum wage to be reduced by one-dollar an hour so that it would equal the federal standard.

 

Those remarks drew harsh criticism from Rauner’s Republican rivals and Democratic incumbent Governor Pat Quinn.

 

Now Rauner says he was unclear in those remarks… and tells the Chicago Sun-Times he actually supports raising the federal wage to $10 an hour, and then tying the state wage to that federal level.
