Martinez120414Senate Majority Caucus Whip Iris Y. Martinez (D-Chicago 20th) issued the following statement on the Senate’s passage of legislation raising the statewide minimum wage:

Today, members of the Senate were given an opportunity to do the right thing. We had the opportunity to enact the will of the voters, lift hundreds of thousands of workers out of poverty and encourage economic growth by increasing spending in our local communities.

I was proud to co-sponsor legislation raising the minimum wage and vote today to extend hope for a better life to Illinois’ 400,000 minimum wage employees and their families. Our work is not yet done, and I’m committed to urging my colleagues in the House to send this much-needed anti-poverty measure to the governor’s desk as soon as possible.
