Rauner's Latest Statement On Minimum Wage Contradicts On-Air Views Last September


Bruce Rauner’s position on the minimum wage remains a question mark as the issue continues to stir up controversy in his campaign to become governor. 

 

Rauner this week disavowed comments he made in December, in which he appeared to call for a reduction in the state’s $8.25 an hour minimum wage, back to the federal level of $7.25.  Instead, Rauner says he actually supports raising the federal wage to $10 an hour, and raising the state’s rate to the same level. 

 

But that contradicts the view he expressed in September to a local GOP group and in a live interview on 970 WMAY, when Rauner said he was opposed to any hike in the minimum wage, saying it would hurt the economy and “devastate job opportunities.”  Rauner is set to appear live again Friday with 970 WMAY’s Fritz Pfister, starting at 9am.
