On the same day City Council approved an ordinance that will boost the wage for most Chicago workers to $10 an hour in July and $13 by mid-2019, Ald. Brendan Reilly (42nd) and Ald. Bob Fioretti (2nd) joined Bob and Marianne to explain their votes. Fioretti voted for the increase but says it’s not enough. Reilly voted against it because he thinks it will hurt city businesses.
