MWFPA Opposes IL Minimum Wage Proposal

MWFPA today expressed its opposition to the proposed hike in IL’s minimum wage which is currently before the House Labor & Commerce Committee.

HB 198 would gradually increase IL’ minimum wage to $15 per hour in 2022 and impose significant new costs on employers of all sizes. This is an 82 percent spike in the minimum wage and would make the state’s minimum wage the highest in the nation when fully phased in.  Read the MWFPA news release here.
