Why should ANY profession have a minimum anymore? Minimum wage, historically, was targeted at single-bread-winner families. Now that both spouses work in most cases the need for minimum wage is lessened due to that fact. You also don't need to pay teenagers a "living" wage.

I guess that it only makes sense that, in the great state of Illinois, where 4 of our last 7 governors have spent time (or are currently) in jail, that a CONVICTED felon could run for public office!

I can see police officers or medical workers or other necessary workers getting $15/hr minimum, but fast-food workers? All they do is work to provide a luxury. Most of them could and/or should go get some vocational training in order to get a job that pays better, such as Cindy Enriquez mentioned in the article.

Former Drug Court director gets 30 days in jail

5 months ago From WTAD News

John Grotts allowed a drug house at his Ursa home

The former head of the Adams County drug court will spend 30 days and jail and serve 200 hours of community service, a U.S. Attorney's Office spokeswoman said.

John Grotts pleaded guilty to allowing a drug house in his Ursa home. He was arrested in April 2012.

Grotts appeared in the U.S. District Court Central District of Illinois Monday where U.S. District Judge Sue Myerscough.

U.S. Attorney Spokeswoman Sharon Paul said it's unclear where Grotts will serve his jail time as Adams County Jail typically doesn't house federal inmates. It's likely he would serve his 30 days in the Pike County Jail.
