Sen. Terry LinkSPRINGFIELD – Assistant Majority Leader Terry Link (D-Indian Creek) released the following statement this afternoon after voting to increase Illinois’ minimum wage to $15 per hour by 2025:

“Working families haven’t seen a raise in Illinois since 2010, while costs for housing, child care and food have only continued to increase. The compromise plan I supported today gradually increases wages while providing a key tax refund for small businesses.

“For thousands of Illinois families struggling to get by, this increase will provide more security and stability in their everyday lives.”

Senate Bill 1 passed on a 39-18 vote and now heads to the Illinois House for further debate.
