Why Chicago is Warming Up to Raising Minimum Wage

morningamp:

Chicago Aldermen are suggesting that the city raise it’s minimum wage to $13/hr by 2018. Of course they won’t vote on the measure until after the November elections and state lawmakers work on the issue. How do you think this wage increase will effect workers, small business owners, and the city’s economy? The AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams discuss.

Vocalo on WBEZ Ep. 39 - Gaycism, Dead Prez, Big Once

In this episode: After a long, contentious campaign, Barack Obama won re-election as president of the United States. The president delivered his victory speech to throngs of supporters at McCormick Place convention center. Team Vocalo’s Shantell Jamison was on-location for us, and she talked to several of the President’s supporters about what his re-election meant to them.

Also, Morning AMp’s Molly brings us a conversation that intern Nick Passarelli had with Nico Lang, founder of the online queer blog, In Our Words&rt; They spoke about the concept of “gaycism” on TV.

Hip hop duo Dead Prez has used their music to bring attention to many issues, including corrupt politics, race, economics, and freedom. Their new album Information Age expounds on the liberation that develops from inner consciousness. Jesse Menendez spoke with MCs M-1 and Stic.man about how their new enlightenment formed their new album and altered their sound.

Finally, Vocalo DJ Collective member Big Once has a Presidential Mix for us. Tune in!

What to do with all those Cook County judges on Tuesday? f

To retain, or not to retain?

That is the question that will face Cook County voters 58 times on Tuesday, as they’ll be asked whether scores of county judges should be able to keep their gavels.

Yes, that’s a lot of names to keep in mind, on top of all the other pols you’ll have kicking around in your head. But fret not: a handful of Chicago-area legal groups have compiled information on Cook County judges up for retention.

Election Insights from Gwen Ifill, Senior Correspondent for PBS NewsHour

Gwen Ifill, senior correspondent for PBS NewsHour and former moderator of two vice-presidential debates, is a little tired of election talk as Tuesday approaches. But, as a political junkie, she can never really get enough. She talks with us about what effects Hurricane Sandy and this last week of campaigning will really have on the Tuesday’s results (if we even know them that night) and what happens Wednesday morning for the losing candidate.
