Chicago wants living wages

Shakespeares Sister
Chicago has passed a bill requiring all Big Box retailers to pay its employees at least $10 an hour plus $3 an hour worth of benefits. the rule is that if the building is larger than 90,000 sq ft and is part of a billion dollar + company than the have to abide by this rule. sounds perfect although I see 89,000 sq ft buildings being built.....

Deffinatly a great first step towards living wages for employees.
