In an effort to increase wages for hardworking men and women across Illinois, state Rep. La Shawn K. Ford, D-Chicago, passed a resolution in the House of Representatives on Wednesday designating March of 2015 and 2016 as “Ask Your Boss for a Raise Month.”

“It is important that workers understand their rights and are paid a fair wage for the amount of time they work,” Ford said. “I hope this resolution brings more awareness to this issue and encourages employers and employees to discuss fair compensation.”
