Ever since the Northbrook Village Board opted out of the Cook County minimum wage and paid sick leave ordinances on May 23, the Northbrook Working Families Coalition has continued to attend board meetings to speak out in opposition to the Board’s vote to opt out of the ordinances. Wilmette and Glenview, two other North Shore communities, also opted out of the ordinances earlier this year. According to, more than 100 of Cook County’s 132 municipalities have opted out of the ordinances that took effect on July 1.
