March 19, 2019 1:09PM CDT
Thousands of people who take care of adults or children for the state will soon be getting a bigger paycheck. SEIU yesterday announced that Governor JB Pritzker will pay a long-stalled 48-cent-an-hour pay raise to home care and child care workers. They will also get a year’s worth of backpay. Governor Rauner refused to pay the raises. The back pay alone will cost taxpayers 29-million-dollars.
