Democrats Consider Minimum Wage Referendum


Still struggling to find the votes to approve a state minimum wage increase, Illinois Senate Democrats are considering an alternative plan… one that would put the issue before voters in November as a non-binding referendum.

 

Even though Democrats have a supermajority in the Senate, some of the party’s Southern Illinois lawmakers are resisting the wage increase bill… saying it would likely drive jobs across the border into neighboring states.

 

It’s also still unclear if a wage hike has the votes needed to pass the House.
