The state Officials have Announced that the minimum wage in Illinois is set to increase on the first day of the year.
The new wage will now be $12 an hour and by 2025 it will be 15 per hour as the State Governor JB Pritzker signed legislation in 2019 putting the state on the path to 15 dollars per hour.
The Minimum wage workers are being encouraged to keep a close eye on their paychecks as from 2022 as any time the worker worked, it must reflect the new $12 an hour minimum wage.
The new law maintains provisions for employers to count gratuities to offset wages for workers, such as food servers, who regularly earn tips. Tipped employees may be paid 60 percent of the hourly minimum wage. However, these workers must still earn the minimum wage after receiving tips or the employer will make up the difference.
