The $15 Minimum Wage

So we had an advisory referendum on a $10 an hour 2 years ago, it passed and then the Democrats didn't advance it before Rauner took office....

Now they vote for a $15 an hour minimum wage 2 years later because...

Because they know that Rauner will veto it and if using it the minimum wage to get enough people to the polls didn't work maybe this will.

The entertaining and highly unlikely option is that Rauner signs it, calls their bluff as it were because while it might be popular with unions and some groups, it is likely not to play as well with business interests and it isn't going to play well at all with small businesses, especially those in rural areas.
