Remembering Dan Wolf
In Memory of Dan Wolf, Owner of The Bagel and Long Time Community Advocate
It is with a heavy heart that we share with you that long time local business owner of The Bagel, Dan Wolf, has passed away. Danny was instrumental in growing The Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce and served on the Special Service Area Commission for over 30 years. His dedication to the neighborhood has made a profound impact on our business community for years to come.
Dan was one of the few child survivors of the Theresienstadt concentration camp, and when he came to America, he began working in his grandparents restaurant, The Bagel in Albany Park which brought old world recipes to the states. He brought The Bagel to Lakeview East and he has since become a fixture in our community, bringing people together over incredible food, open doors, and great company over the last 70 years in business. We mourn the loss of Dan Wolf and we are thankful for all he has taught us, all the memories our community has made because of his tireless work, and his endless dedication to helping those in need. Dan is survived by his companion and spouse of over 60 years Mitchell Kaufman.

Minimum Wage Increases to $15.40 and Fair Workweek Advance Notice Requirement for Changes to Work Schedules Increases to 14 days Improving the Economic Security and Stability for over 400,000 Chicago Workers
Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot and the Chicago Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection (BACP) announced the annual scheduled increase in Chicago’s minimum wage and a scheduled enhancement of the Fair Workweek ordinance requirements.
Every July 1, Chicago’s minimum wage increases per the Minimum Wage Ordinance. The Chicago minimum wage is tiered for large businesses with 21 or more employees, and small businesses with 4-20 employees. The minimum wage for larger employees increases annually according to the Consumer Price Index or 2.5%, whichever is lower, since reaching $15 per hour in 2021. The minimum wage for small businesses continues to increase towards $15 per hour by 2023.
As of July 1, 2022, the Chicago minimum wage will be:
·     $15.40 for employers with 21 or more employees (including all domestic workers, regardless of the number employed)
·    $14.50 for employers with 4-20 employees
·    The minimum wage for tipped employees will be $9.24 for employers with 21 or more employees, and $8.70 for employers with 4-20 employees (employers must make up the difference between any tips received and the applicable minimum wage for non-tipped workers.)
As of July 1, 2022, scheduled enhancements to the Fair Workweek Ordinance will require:
·    Employers in covered industries to post work schedules with at least 14 days’ notice, an increase from the previous 10 days’ notice.
·    Employees will need to earn less than $29.35 per hour or $56,381.85 per year to gain protection under the Fair Workweek Ordinance.
·    Covered industries include building services, healthcare, hotel, manufacturing, restaurant, retail, or warehouse services.
