This infographic shows how the basic costs of living in Illinois for a family with one worker and two children far outsize a minimum wage budget. Minimum wage workers in Illinois earn $1430 a month.

With costs of living so high, a family of three in Illinois would need to spend 3x their monthly income to live without unsustainable sacrifices.
