Government is apparently intervening to ensure fair wages for a certain sector of blue- collar workers. Building on efforts to protect hardworking families, Gov. JB Pritzker signed House Bill 3940 into law, ensuring that automobile mechanics at dealerships are paid fairly for their skilled labor. “When we prioritize middle-class families by making sure they’re paid fairly, we build a stronger state,” said Governor JB Pritzker. “All work deserves fair compensation, and I’m proud that the bill I’m signing ensures automobile mechanics are compensated fairly for the critical skilled labor they provide.” Currently, auto-mechanics who work for car dealerships that provide warranty repairs are not compensated fairly for their skilled labor. This legislation ensures that auto-mechanics are paid for the actual time and labor it takes to repair vehicles that are under warranty.
