SCHAUMBURG - Tuesday morning's panel of manufacturers and mayors brought up some eye-opening topics on how well-meaning state legislation and county ordinances can bring unexpected consequences on manufacturers.

Tuesday's Mayors & Manufacturers breakfast discussion touched 3 hot topics:

1. what happened to a Chicago business on the first day paid time off went into effect
2. how Cook County's minimum wage ordinance negatively affected one manufacturers' employees
3. how Amazon coming into Chicago could cause serious issues with the region's transportation system.

We'll be reporting more on Technology & Manufacturing AssociationFacebook page and blog in the days to come.
