The unions in Chicago only exist to get more democrat voters in a pay-for-vote scheme. I honestly have no sympathy for all those who voted in these people and willingly set up a grave-retirement for themselves while others have to pay for their upkeep the rest of their lives.


However, looks like something is coming home to roost. At least if it was chickens instead of valueless "promises", they would have enough to eat. Or is there no worries at all? Are they simply planning to raise property taxes 150% OR tax the rest of the US population?

Will be interesting to see. And teachers are now suing to keep their goodies. What a joke!!

The message seems to be the more corrupt you are are the more you get rewarded. Kinda like giving guns to a mexican drug cartel. Or partying in vegas while Americans are being gunned down and lying about it to help yourself get elected. But hey lets keep voting along party lines. Yeah keep listening to those corrupt union bosses who keep throwing their members under the bus Yeah that DOL is a model government agency isn't it ?.

From my understanding, inspectors and some maintenance guys are non union, but as far as new construction i doubt theres much non union in the city, mayb 2-3 floor buildings in the burbs , but any high rise in the city would be our guys

It's time to move on with your life, everyone else has including the Red Menace. Brad, push your shopping cart with all your possessions to the viaduct under I57 and get some rest. You're near the truck stop and you can visit your wife who's giving BJ's to truckers to make ends meet. How sad Brad, how sad.
