Humbert began working for the City of Chicago in 1967 in the first of a series of construction and maintenance jobs, records show.
In 1993, at age 56, he took early retirement from his janitorial job with the Chicago Board of Education and began collecting his city pension.
After that, he went to work for Cook County as an operating engineer.
Then, in 2001, Humbert heard about a job at McPier.
- By that time, he had been working in government for about 35 years. That made him eligible for a McPier "reciprocity" program "in which vacation credits are given for prior government service," according to Stacey White, a McPier auditor. In other words, McPier would pay him for vacation days he didn't earn at McPier.
