City Council: Minimum wage hike proposed; ride-share law passes

An ordinance co-sponsored by 22 aldermen was introduced at Wednesday’s City Council meeting that would make a little more than half of Chicago’s businesses pay a $15-an-hour minimum wage. But according to Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s floor leader it is doubtful aldermen will consider the bill until the mayor’s  “Minimum Wage Working Group” releases a report on the wage floor.

The ordinance was referred to the City Council Workforce and Audit Committee chaired by Alderman Patrick O’Connor (40th), Emanuel’s floor leader.
