Preckwinkle outlines plan to raise Chicago’s minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2021

The “Fight for $15” won’t be much of a fight if County Board President Toni Preckwinkle is elected mayor.

Preckwinkle on Tuesday outlined a plan to raise Chicago’s minimum wage — currently set at $12 an hour and due to rise to $13 an hour on July 1 — in 50-cent increments until it reaches $15 an hour “no later than July 2021 and possibly earlier” when the cost of living is factored in.
