Workforce Development And Audit Committee
Chicago aldermen and labor leaders have answered a resounding no to Gov. Bruce Rauner’s plans to create so-called “right to work” zones in communities throughout the state.
The City Council Committee on Workforce Development on Monday backed the mayor’s plan to raise the minimum wage in Chicago to $13 an hour by 2019, and sent the measure to the full City Council for a vote on Tuesday.
Ald. Patrick O’Connor (40th), who is close to new Mayor Rahm Emanuel, will be a key player as the City Council reorganization moves forward.
