Rahm Shuffles Another Deck
Now he's raiding the suburbs for jobs that already exist:
- U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) says Motorola Mobility’s decision to relocate to Chicago from Libertyville is another example of Mayor Rahm Emanuel raiding the suburbs to help city.
As WBBM Newsradio [...] reports, Walsh says it bothers him that Emanuel seems to be taking jobs from suburbs and bringing them to the city.
It should bother a lot of people because Rahm isn't creating jobs. He isn't even fostering an environment where jobs might be created. He's dragging in suburbanites (3/4 of the employees to be moved live outside of Chicago) and hoping they eat lunch downtown, by gas downtown and pay downtown parking rates or use the CTA. Libertyville is more than a little irritated and justifiably so.
