Lori Lightfoot Leads Labor Law Legislation Leaf Turning – Connected to Chicago (07/28/19)

Bill Cameron sits down with President and CEO of the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce, Jack Lavin. They discuss the fair work week ordinance, and the importance of its implementation. Lavin shares what is next on the Chamber’s agenda, with issues including infrastructure, transportation, and pensions. He presents a new asset transfer idea, which could help fund pensions, and explains his position on the new $15 minimum wage. Bill also talks with Chicago Congressman, Dan Lipinski. Bill asks about Lipinski’s position on the two year budget bill, and the raising of the national debt.

On this week’s roundtable, Bill Cameron is joined by Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun Times, Ray Long of The Chicago Tribune, Greg Hinz of Crain’s, Fran Spielman of The Chicago Sun Times, and Heather Cherone, of The Daily Line. They discuss Mayor Lori Lightfoot and her role in the fair work week ordinance, as well as her “live mic” comments, and a verbal altercation she was involved in this week. They also discuss Alderman Ed Burke and the new issues he faces due to the Ethics Reform in Chicago.

This week’s Community Spotlight segment with John Dempsey is on Mayor Lightfoot’s plan to reform the way the city hands out fines for not paying parking tickets, or not having a city sticker.

Rep. Daniel Lipinski on ‘Get Behind the Vest’ and fundraising event

Big John and Ramblin’ Ray have Rep Daniel Lipinski discuss “Get Behind the Vest,” a community-based effort to raise money toward the purchase of replacement bulletproof vests for Chicago police officers.

Police officers are provided with one bulletproof vest when they join the force but are responsible for purchasing replacement vests themselves. At $500 or more per vest, the costs can quickly add up, especially since they wear out and need to be replaced every five years or after coming in contact with a bullet. The Congressman, in partnership with Chicago Alderman Silvana Tabares and local community leaders and businesses, is hosting a pancake breakfast on Sunday, October 14 from 8 am to noon at St. Daniel the Prophet School, 5337 S. Natoma, Chicago.

Proceeds go to the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation.
