Illinois Minimum Wage Hike Moves Forward

A plan to increase the minimum wage in Illinois is moving forward.

The latest plan calls for a $2.40 increase over a three-year period.

That would mean the current Illinois minimum wage would go from $8.25/hour to $10.65/hour.

The bill passed out of a Senate committee Thursday. The chief sponsor of the bill says changes could come before the bill goes before the full Senate.

Illinois already has the fourth highest minimum wage in the country.

Opponents say that if the bill passes it could cost the state 45,000 jobs.
