Chicago follows San Francisco's lead on wage hike

Chicago is the latest city to raise its minimum wage. It follows in the footsteps of Seattle and more recently San Francisco, which hiked its hourly wage to $15 an hour. There were lots of speeches about the issue during Tuesday’s Chicago City Council meeting and in the end the vote was a lopsided 44-5. San Francisco Chronicle reporter Joe Garofoli has the details on how the issue played out in that city. (Flickr/Frank Kovalchek)
