Economic justice is a part of a thriving community. Wilmette residents overwhelmingly voted to increase the minimum wage to $10 and to allow employees to earn sick leave. Fair wages and sick leave make a healthier community and a stronger local economy for all of us.
Wilmette is the only North Shore suburb to create an ordinance rejecting the benefits promised by Cook County. We can do better.
By providing my signature and email, I join my neighbors and encourage Wilmette’s Trustees to support our working families: Please honor Cook County’s minimum wage and earned sick leave ordinances.
