Illinois Senate proposes $15 minimum wage

Author: Editor

Business interests are suggesting ways to minimize the impact of increasing Illinois' minimum wage while Democrats in the Legislature rush to send a plan to Gov. J.B. Pritzker. 

The Senate Labor Committee heard a measure Wednesday to increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour. It has been $8.25 since 2010. Senate Majority Leader Kimberly Lightford hasn't fleshed out her proposal . But the Maywood Democrat says Pritzker wants to sign a law before he presents an annual budget in February.

Big crowd floods downtown Geneva for women's march; Lauren Underwood among those to applaud change

Author: Editor
Blowing snow and temperatures in the mid-20s Saturday morning did not deter a legion of women from taking to the streets of downtown Geneva in a show of solidarity.
 
"We're tough and we are going to march through," said Leah Beck, co-organizer of the Fox Valley Women’s March. "We are going to stand up for our rights and not let the weather slow us down.”
 
Orchestrated by We Can Lead Change Fox Valley and Kane County Coalition, the march was one of hundreds being held around the country to send a message of self-determination and unity.
