Statement of Mayor George Van Dusen and the Skokie Village Board Regarding Minimum Wage in the Village:

The Village officials very much appreciate the outpouring of comment in support of maintaining the current system of minimum wage in the Village of Skokie. The Village saw in the State of Illinois minimum wage legislation certain important provisions: a structure that arrives at $15 per hour while Cook County’s minimum wage gets to $13 an hour; annual increases that are more than Cook County’s annual adjustments for inflation after 2020; and, a uniform minimum wage that the entire State agreed upon.

Residents have raised important questions about limitations in the state’s minimum wage and, after consulting with our state legislators and county representative, along with community leaders, the Mayor and Village Trustees have decided to permanently table its resolution on minimum wage. The Village hereby will stand by the status quo based on the Cook County minimum wage as adopted two years ago. We leave reconciling the two conflicting laws to the Illinois General Assembly and the Cook County Board.
