Minimum Wage and Tip Credit Elimination Ordinance


The Chicago City Council is currently considering an ordinance that would raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2021 and eliminate the tip credit in the city of Chicago. Under the ordinance, employers would be required to pay 100% of tipped employees' wages by 2023. Click here to read the ordinance.  

Click here to contact your local Alderman and members of the Committee on Workforce Development to urge them to maintain the tip credit in Chicago.



Please contact Matt Quinn, Assistant Director of Government Relations & Communications, at (312) 380-4122 or with any comments or questions about legislation, regulations, or IRA advocacy efforts.
