Legislators, Workers, Advocates Launch Campaign to Pass a $15 Wage Floor in Illinois

Fight for $15

SPRINGFIELD - Rep. Will Guzzardi joined workers and advocates to kick off a new effort to raise the state minimum wage to $15/hr by 2022. Legislators will introduce a new bill this week, and workers and advocates in the “$15 for Illinois’ Future Campaign” pledged a powerful statewide field campaign to let voters know about the opportunity to raise pay for 2.3 million residents to $15/hr. More than 40 percent of working people in Illinois are paid less than $15/hr.
