Ward Reports September 21, 2023

Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa (35) posted "Victory! Mayor Johnson's One Fair Wage ordinance to give tipped workers a raise passed the Committee on Workforce today! Now the ordinances advances to the full City Council for final passage."

Ald. Matt Martin (47) posted "On Friday, I joined @alderman_beale and other colleagues to tour the historic Pullman neighborhood and visit an exhibit honoring the first all Black labor union. Every person has a right to a fair wage, fair hours, a dignified retirement, and the right to organize to win it 💪🏽"

Ald. Jessie Fuentes (26) posted "Today, the #OneFairWage ordinance passed out of the Workforce Dev. Committee 9 to 3 and will now go to a full City Council vote in Oct. Abolishing the sub-minimum wage for tipped workers is not just admirable, it's what’s just, what’s right, & what’s needed in this city. We can't say we want communities on the South & West sides to be economically viable if we’re not willing to pay people the minimum wage. We can't say that we understand errors via history, but continue to make those mistakes. We're asking for change. #OneFairWage #twil #labor"

Ald. Julia Ramirez (12) posted "Friday October 6th, join us at the Mckinley Park Branch Library for a Vaccine Health Fair, we will be partnering with the Chicago Department of Public Health. There will be free Covid-19 Booster and Flu Shots for residents Hope to see you there."

Ald. Gilbert Villegas (36) posted "The city that works? Despite my office communicating with @PeoplesGasCHI and @ChicagoDOT to coordinate the replacement of the entire block of sidewalks, months ago on the restoration, they’re moving forward with the old tired way of doing business. Now @ChicagoDOT has to come back out next year to replace the squares that @PeoplesGasCHI didn’t damage. I am going to pass this ordinance so Chicagoans don’t have to go through this nonsense . #makeitmakesense @ChicagosMayor"
