Cartoon: Democratic math on Illinois minimum wage

Jul 17, 2014

The debate over raising the Illinois minimum wage is happening on two levels. Statewide, Gov. Pat Quinn advocated an increase from the current $8.25 an hour to $10. In Chicago, a mayoral commission has recommended and Mayor Rahm Emanuel supports raising the city’s minimum wage to $13 an hour. The debate is split on party lines, with Democrats in support and Republicans opposed.

This Scott Stantis cartoon appeared with the Chicago Tribune’s July 16 editorial under the headline, “Minimum wage hike imperils Chicago job creation.”
