One on One with Rob Karr, President of the Illinois Retail Merchants Assn

From Springfield:  With many policy proposals being debated by legislative candidates, from raising the minimum wage, to raising taxes, we talk with Rob Karr, of the Illinois Retail Merchants Assn.

We also hear the impact of rising healthcare premiums are having on retail merchants hiring.  And the impact on retailers of a “soda tax” that is applied to any drink containing sweetners, whether soda, sweetened coffee, or sweet tea.
