Issue Position: Dan Rutherford Statement on Minimum Wage

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Unknown

Illinois State Treasurer Dan Rutherford does not support lowering the state's minimum wage, nor does he support increasing it at this time.

"Lowering the minimum wage in Illinois is a bad idea. Doing so would place an unfair burden on workers. I will never be a fan of taking money from peoples' wallets, and that's what lowering the minimum wage would do."

"I believe every American should be able to make as much money as possible, legally and ethically. State government should not put an artificial cost of doing business increase on a business, church or local unit of government by increasing the minimum wage."
