Illinois minimum wage proposed to $7.50
STATE OF ILLINOIS
SPRINGFIELD -- Governor Rod R. Blagojevich today applauded members of the Illinois Senate for approving legislation to increase the minimum wage to $7.50 per hour, and provide for future cost of living adjustments indexed to inflation. Senate Bill 1275 now moves to the Illinois House of Representatives for consideration. Under terms of the Senate bill, the state’s minimum wage would rise by $1.00 per hour to $7.50 per hour beginning July 1, 2007. Starting in January 2008, the minimum wage would be indexed to inflation to provide an annual wage adjustment in order to help workers keep up rising prices. Up to 647,000 Illinois workers are expected to benefit from the minimum wage increase either directly or indirectly. In addition, 269,000 children are expected to benefit.
