Will you vote for an ordinance requiring that large corporate entities receiving $250,000 or more in public subsidies, and their tenants, must pay their workers a living wage (currently $11/hour)?

I would need to know more about the impact of this proposal

Yes. Note: It is now $13/hr

no

YES. I support the concept of a higher minimum wage, but I am concerned with the implementation of the city’s minimum wage increase. Most concerning is that fact that the minimum wage in surrounding regions is significantly lower than in Chicago, meaning that costs are increased for businesses and consumers in Chicago but not the surrounding communities, driving business across city limits.
I am also concerned that this move increases the cost of doing business in the city without pairing it with necessary reforms that would bring reductions in business costs. As a result, it will be harder for our current businesses to create jobs for our residents, as well as it being harder for future employers to establish their roots in the city.

$11/hr? Are you kidding? I fully support a $15/hr minimum wage.
