National executive committee member of the Main Street Alliance small business network and member of Business for a Fair Minimum Wage
June 23, 2015
My name is David Borris and I own a 30-year-old catering business with a full-time staff of 31 people and over 90 part-time and seasonal employees. I pay a starting wage of $11.00 an hour – well above the current Illinois minimum wage of $8.25. And my business is thriving.
Paying good wages is part of my recipe for success. Raising the minimum wage is smart policy for Illinois.
