IRA President & CEO Sam Toia recently shared his perspective with Crain's Chicago and CBS2 Chicago on Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle's call for a $15 minimum wage in Chicago by 2021.

"The IRA would rather see a more reasonable, statewide proposal that won't force Chicago restaurants to raise prices and ultimately reduce jobs across the city."
