CHICAGO (AP) — Rahm Emanuel is expected to issue an executive order that will require city contractors and subcontractors to pay employees a $13-an-hour minimum wage.

Emanuel’s office says he’ll sign the order Wednesday morning.

Officials say the order will apply to city contracts advertised after Oct. 1 and will affect about 1,000 contracted employees.

Employees would include landscapers, maintenance workers, security officers and custodial workers.
