Who's Paying?

So it's been discussed in numerous comment sections - who's paying for the overtime?

One rumor is that MLB is footing the bill. We'd ask, "Why? It isn't their problem."

Another has Homeland Security chipping in due to unpublished "concerns." This would seem more likely given the way the Department is throwing around overtime on non-clinching days and travel days.

Some others speculate that the increased tax revenues from hosting a World Series are equal to the outlays. We'd love to see that accounting process.

Most people figure that if the check clears, what does it matter?

I don't give a fuck who's paying.

All I know is that I have to hustle and save every cent for retirement because Emanuel wants to fuck us out of what is owed us.

Sorry, Rahm, my family cares a lot more about insurance then the fuckin' Cubs or 800 dead criminals..........

I keep commenting that the city is paying. I checked again today with elected officials. The MLB is NOT picking up the tab. As I said this afternoon to officers clustered underneath the El tracks, "Cha Ching. Cha Ching."

You know the city would try and find a way to screw us out of what we worked for.

Let the nine digit midget pay for it out of his political fund. MLB did him a solid by keeping his name and his numbers away from the front page. I hear he now wants the Cubs to start a winter league that will play until spring.

*Rumor has it* that Hillary called Rahm and she promised that if she's elected that she'd make sure that the Feds pick up for all the overtime costs involved with the Cubs being in the World Series.

The She-Beast explained to Tiny Dancer that it's the least she could do, being a 'life-long Cubs Fan' (LOL) and all, and it was in the best interest of National Security.

She said she'd confirm all that in an E-Mail. (rotflmao)

There weren't 10 days of 12 hour shifts so that's quite the trick.

I don't understand the question. No one is paying for this. The city didn't go to MLB or the CUBS before the World Series and say, 'Oh, by the way, if you go to the playoffs and World Series, it will cost you this much." The CUBS are NOT responsible for the activities of citizens on the streets outside of Wrigley field and in other places around the city. The police are responsible for the protection and preservation of life and property. A few years ago the city imposed a pretty hefty tax on event tickets to pay for police and traffic. I guarantee you, most of this money is NOT going to pay for theses services at these events, but going into the black hole of the general fund. Further, a functional city government would plan for unexpected events like winning a Stanly Cup or World Series, or maybe a visit by the Pope, and have a contingency fund set aside for just such events. Of course, that is a functional city government, not a corruptbunch of crooks.

Perhaps the media can do their job ask the city or aldermen who is paying and let the tax payers know.

Collect in December, best to save that money for your next tax bill coming Feb 2017.

Hope all that stood around enjoyed an easy detail environment, void of a roaming SG 2.0 and a frantic Henny Penny. Both are in for bigger and better things now. As for the flunky patrolman, watch out for the inspectors today.

Stay fetal again.

You had no choice to take all money, unless you had been on furlough earlier in the period. All hours worked over 171 hrs in a period are paid out. Learn your contract.... SMH

"The CUBS are NOT responsible for the activities of citizens on the streets outside of Wrigley field and in other places around the city."

They apparently think they're responsible for the activities of citizens on the public sidewalks though. Event staff, not police, shooing people off the public sidewalk.

This most likely sounds crazy coming from someone who actually cares if you are overworked and could end up getting killed because your instincts are not as sharp as they would be with proper rest, but tell me if it's worth putting your life at risk because a very wealthy man has a meeting? A meeting?? Where is your FOP on this? Why does it seem that no one is speaking out on your behalf? Okay, end rant. Now you can tell me why I sound like your grandmother. (I am old enough to be)

A good portion is federal money because of the SEAR designation for all World Series games. It's Homeland Security money.
