Did you know…

– The Mercantile Exchange got $15 million in our tax dollars to remodel their bathrooms, despite making $457 million profit in three months this year?!

– $250 million dollars gets taken from CPS classrooms every year, and given to rich corporations like Boeing, United Airlines, and MillerCoors!

– Bank foreclosed properties cost the city millions in upkeep, fire and police response, while banks enjoy skyrocketing profits!

We say: It’s Our Money, and We Want It Back!

1,500 Chicago residents are coming together to say YES to putting working families first, and YES to demanding that corporations and banks pay their fair share…for good jobs, quality public schools, and affordable housing for all. In Chicago, working families come first!
