Emanuel criticizes Rauner on min. wage stance
“That is an idea that looks forward to the future and makes sure more people have access and ability to ensure themselves and their children are in the middle class and the idea that you would reduce it, is actually an idea that looks backwards and is gonna take us down.”
Rauner’s Republican primary opponents have said they do not support raising Illinois’ minimum wage from $8.25. Those are Treasurer Dan Rutherford and State Senators Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard.
