Chicago Progressives Not Serious About Job Creation

January 12, 2010

Progressives and their unions in Chicago are not serious about bringing jobs to this city’s most economically depressed areas.

They will not let Wallmart bring jobs and low prices to Chicago unless ACORN’s and SEIU’s “living wage” requirements are met.

From Marathon Pundit:

Burke, who is chairman of the powerful City Council Finance Committee, wants Wal-Mart to jump through “living wage” hoops before he allows the retail giant to break ground on its second store. Three other proposed big boxes hang in the balance.

The unions and Burke evidently prefer “no wages” unless they get their way.

Did I mention that Illinois has a 10.9 percent unemployment rate?

Progressive-Democrats to Chicago’s unemployed, “Screw You!”
