The mayor joined the rank and file picketing this week. Imagine what CAT management must think when they realize the economic impact on the city just to have the Mayor take the other side of the issue. No doubt CAT will consider this a hostile move and will send a message that in the long term this plant needs to move. Let the mayor have his union votes in his little dump of a town that could very well soon lose the major employer and key to the economic survival of Joliet as a whole.
Yes add that to the carpal tunnel from turning jail locks by unionized guards at the menard prison. Of course the democrat trial lawyers have had a lot of say in this fiasco because they faithfully get a cut of the action on all of the claims directly or indirectly. No wonder former industrial areas like Peoria, East St Louis, Decatur and a few others have fallen into the drain.
I just read an interesting article about Romney's 15 years at Bain. If you are counting on him to help the USA I think you will be disappointed. I don't hold one party more responsible than the other for the mess we are in. They are equally responsible because the politicians have allowed themselves to be bought by various entities....both sides are guilty of this.
You're right. Most of them are union government workers. Did you read the the Tribune opinion piece today about repetitive walking claims? Give me a friggin' break. Only in a union controlled state can that happen. It's going to be a painful time when someone stands up to the democratic controlled, union financed organization and places Illinois on a path to financial survival. There is no way they can tax their way out of this mess.
