Gov. J.B. Pritzker has said he is “proud” to sign a bill passed by the state’s Democrat-controlled House Feb. 14 gradually raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour in 2025.

The Chicago Tribune said the measure would give the new governor “an early political victory, grant pay raises to workers and upset businesses across the state.”

The step-by-step wage increase begins next Jan. 1 when it rises to $9.25 an hour from the current $8.25.
