Could Chicago see a $15 minimum wage?

In the primary election in March, Chicagoans will get the chance to voice their opinions on the minimum wage debate. Voters in certain precincts will see a referendum on the upcoming ballot asking whether Chicago should raise its minimum wage to $15/hour for employees of companies making $50 million or more. We hear from Katelyn Johnson, executive director of Action Now, and Tanya Triche, the vice president of Illinois Retail Merchants Association. Photo: Flickr/BobboSphere
