Yesterday, you may have seen Scabby the Rat set up outside the Starbucks construction site at Lawrence and Central. For those of you who don’t know, Scabby is used by unions as a creative and attention-drawing protest at sites that are using non-union labor. I reached out to Starbucks as soon as I was made aware of the situation. Starbucks replied that they had bid the project out with the understanding that it would be 100% union labor, and they would remedy the situation immediately. I remain committed to strong unions and workers’ rights. I will continue to use my position to fight for fair labor laws for all Chicagoans.

    $1 Billion, Two Years, 12 Minutes From O'Hare to Downtown: Can Elon Musk Pull It Off?
    Even with excitement brewing around the futuristic plan to build a high-speed rail line connecting O'Hare Airport to the Loop, and Elon Musk's Boring Company now at the helm of the project, critics of the project continue to have some pointed concerns. Mayor Rahm Emanuel, for one, gushes about his administration's 150 mph vision.

    Daniel D,
    It did, at a hefty sum as well.
    I wasn't trying to start a debate. Just showing that there is always room for expansion, no matter what, all in the name of getting us and our products from point A to point B ASAP.

    I guess the one thing northsiders can't complain about is that they are higher food chain than surrounding municipalities when it comes to airport expansion.
    I haven't read anything about the disturbance the boring machines make where they have been tested. But I have to believe there will be some crooked pictures and nervous pets along the proposed route.
