  • Chicago
    Raise the minimum wage to $15 in Chicago
    Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich has been making the case for a $15 minimum wage, and I agree with him. He argues that businesses will see more customers and workers will have more money in their pocket. A new study from Raise Chicago shows how a $15 minimum wage would boost our city’s economy. It would raise overall wages in Chicago by as much as $1.5 billion, create 5,300 new jobs and $43 million in new tax revenue, and even reduce job turnover. Our plan would phase in the increase over a few years, giving our local and small businesses time to adjust.

    Seattle City Council: Raise the minimum wage to $15 for all
    Too many people in Seattle are living in poverty despite holding down a job. Our state’s minimum wage is not enough to afford rent, school, and the other high costs of living in our city. As former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich has argued: If the minimum wage of 1968 stayed even with inflation over the last 45 years, it would be about $15 today. The current minimum wage isn’t enough to lift all workers and their families out of poverty. Most low-wage workers aren’t young teenagers; they’re major breadwinners for their families, and many are women. They and their families need a higher minimum. Nearly 70% of Seattle residents support a $15 minimum wage, according to a January poll -- the same rate that voters in SeaTac adopted last fall. Big business is now mobilizing to stop it. Their plan: to use local small businesses as the public face of a campaign to create new loopholes and exemptions. They want to protect corporate profits and exclude many workers from the $15 minimum wage. Seattle has an opportunity to lead the nation to a wage that lifts workers out of poverty. Let’s set a bold new standard and raise the wage to $15 in Seattle!

  • Raise the minimum wage to $12 an hour in Illinois and put a cap on CEO salaries
    Out of all developed nations, the United States has the most unequal distribution of wealth. Middle class wages have remained stagnant, while the top 1% have seen 95% of the gains. Raising the minimum wage is one of the best ways to combat income inequality and give Americans a raise. Setting a reasonable wage for skilled workers would also help our state. If we put a cap on CEO pay the profits of the companies can be passed along to the skilled workers instead of one CEO getting it all
