Despite a budget deficit estimated in the hundreds of millions of dollars, the Daley administration is giving raises for 50 politically appointed Streets and Sanitation ward superintendents.

"They are asking our people for concessions, yet giving their bosses a raise," said Chicago Federation of Labor leader Dennis Gannon. "It leaves a bad taste in your mouth. It's just not rational."
