Small Compensation

my eyes are up here Illinois's billionaire candidates are amping up their efforts to buy themselves the November election.  Unless they win, they will be forced to pay their employees a decent wage.

Haha, a Chicago Tribune poll says a large majority of voters want to raise the minimum wage:
The poll found 69 percent of Illinois voters back an increase in the state's $8.25-an-hour minimum wage to $10 by Jan. 1 for adults over age 18.
Poll: Illinois voters back referendum issues
Local planners have positioned Lake County to uniquely benefit from an increased minimum wage. That's because the average Lake County job starts at $4.95 per hour.

They say a rising tide lifts all boats -- and what is true for Blarney Island will be true for Lake County. A $1.75 hike in the minimum wage will mean a sudden increase in discretionary spending, county-wide. Industries expected to benefit, above all, include video gaming, medical marijuana and gun sales.

Operatives eager to participate in the good times are advised to get in on the ground floor and snag themselves a good Lake County minimum wage job, while they are still to be gotten. Your LakeCountyEye has been told there are only about 10 left:
