Chicago City Council Passes Law Forcing Big Retailers (i.e. Walmart) to Pay a Living Wage

"The measure requires mega-retailers with over $1 billion in annual sales and stores of at least 90,000 square feet to pay workers at least $10 an hour in wages plus $3 in fringe benefits by mid-2010. The current minimum wage in Illinois is $6.50 an hour and the federal minimum is $5.15."

Music to my aching spirit. Yahooooo!!!! Finally some good news. Power to the people!!
