Oct

Great corporate citizen (not):

The suit [by temp works] claims Labor Ready and QPS, two of the staffing agencies Walmart uses in the Chicago area, failed to provide workers assigned to Walmart stores with information related to their employment, such as employment notices and proper wage payment notices as required by Illinois law.

Chicago Tribune Doomsday: '1/12/11'

Oct

Funny. Every time I hear good news about employment in Illinois -- here's one from today's Chicago Sun-Times titled "Chicago Unemployment Rate Declines to 8 Percent, Lowest Since '08" -- I'm reminded of the following prediction of doom and gloom offered up by the Chicago Tribune Editorial Board in January of 2011:

NPR: Citizens United is Good for Unions Too!

Sep
