posted by iheart staff -

According to www.cltv.com: The bump was part of a plan to raise Chicago’s minimum wage incrementally to $13 per hour by 2019. City Council approved the plan in 2014, when minimum wage was set at $8.25 per hour.

The rate increased to $10 in 2015, $10.50 in 2016, and $11 in 2017. It will hit $12 this summer and increase to $13 on July 1, 2019.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Sunday's increase is a 45 percent increase since 2015.

This is definitely a step in the right direction. There are so many debates about whether this is going have an impact or no.
