(820 ILCS 125/11) (from Ch. 48, par. 198.11)
    Sec. 11. At any time after a minimum fair wage order has been in effect for one year or more, whether during such period it has been directory or mandatory, the Department may on its own motion and shall on petition of fifty or more residents of any county in which women or minors are employed in any occupation reconsider the minimum fair wage rates set therein and reconvene the same wage board or appoint a new wage board to recommend whether or not the rate or rates contained in such order should be modified. The report of such wage board shall be dealt with in the manner prescribed in sections 6 and 7 of this act provided that if the order under reconsideration has theretofore been made mandatory in whole or in part then the Department in making any new order or confirming any old order shall have power to declare to what extent such order shall be directory and to what extent mandatory.
