Chicago Approves Living Wage Ordinance

The City of Chicago passed an ordinance, 35-14, which requires mega-retailers with sales over one billion dollars and stores with greater than 90,000 sq ft to pay workers at least $10/hr plus $3 in benefits.
"It's trying to get the largest companies in America to pay decent wages," said Alderman Toni Preckwinkle.

Saranac Lake should do the same.
