Updated On: Nov 05, 2019
Under the Administration of Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner, prevailing wage violations were ignored. Under Governor J.B. Pritzker, the Illinois Department of Labor has issued 17 notices of violation, including within the Great Plains Laborers District Council, violations in Rockford, East Dubuque, Galena,Milan, DeKalb, Rock Island, Elmwood, Dixon and Creve Couer. Having a labor supportive Governor and Department of Labor helps ensure workers are paid their proper wages and benefits.
