When is this County Exec going to push for decent wages in these warehouses. Will County gets its roads beat up and these businesses get away with paying substandard wages. These warehouses should help Will County raise a middle class not just beat our pavement into the ground and kill drivers. Come on Larry...stop pretending to be a union man when we know you are a corporate puppet.

As soon as everyone stops buying stuff online. The market (aka you and your neighbors) are what drives these warehouses. If they weren’t viable, they would get built

They hate warehouse but love the beauty of the local Walmart parking lot or beg for the fine dining of a new Applebees. That Joliet Court House is going to be beautiful. Running water and indoor plumbing. High ceilings installed to accommodate the big foreheads in the Will County natives.

Most of the people that are against the warehouses are farmers that have sold their land to build warehouses. Talk about hypocrisy. Dennis Oconner, Sewings, Keigher Bernhards Coldwater and the list goes on. You screwed Elwood out of tax benefits. Hypocritical to the max. How do you sleep at night?
