In 103 precincts in the city of Chicago, on the VERY LAST QUESTION ON YOUR BALLOT, there is a non-binding referendum that asks:

  • “Shall the City of Chicago require a minimum wage of $15 per hour for employees of companies that perform work within the City of Chicago where the employing company had annual gross revenues in excess of $50 Million in the last tax year?”  VOTE YES!
