The tax payers of Chicago are the big looser on this deal.
Weak minded, lazy city hall types just cave into any union demand no matter how extreme because they won't have to pay the bill when it comes due.

The real crunch will come when the city goes bankrupt and the courts throw out the union retirement plan because it is not sustainable.

City is loosing tax payers, empty houses ,vacant lots & commercial building don't pay taxes. with an eroding tax base who will be around to pay off the greedy teachers??

Dead kids don't grow up to be productive tax payers , welfare whores, drug dealing gangs don't pay taxes.

Bet obozo doesn't build his library on the south side of Chicago cause drug dealers , welfare whores Chicago school age kids don't read, cause they don't know how????

Chicago is the second coming of Detroit, just need a bunch of loony muslims to take over city hall the beer distributors, give teachers five prayer times a day with over time

now the teachers can get back to doing what they do best - not teaching and calling off sick.
