Funny you should ask….I’ve actually been looking at jobs in IL. While I can’t give you an idea on salary, the companies I’ve looked at with budtending positions don’t require anything more than HS education and the ability to do monotonous, physical work; so, probably pretty low wage but I’m sure the benefits will save you $$$ on bud. However, the jobs Cresco has listed for corporate positions in Chicago seem like they pay well. Well enough for IL, I can’t say. But probably more than I’m making.
