Cook County Minimum Wage & Sick Time: Who’s in, Who’s Out

Cook County passed two ordinances that took effect July 1, 2017. One that raised the minimum wage and one that provided paid sick time.  However, the county allowed individual cities and village to opt out the pro-worker regulations. Below lets you know how each municipality acted.  Details on those minimum wage and paid sick time policies can be found here.
