    Default Mayor Daley spends $18 million in taxpayer money a year on people who don't work

    There is wasteful spending in the city budget- and I'm not talking about Chicago Police officers who abandon their posts to have sex with women while they should be on duty. Last week, the city's Inspector General Joseph Ferguson found $18 million that could easily be trimmed from the budget.

    The city of Chicago employs a taxi service, 200 unionized city truck drivers, to drive city crews to and from job sites. Your street has a pothole that needs repair? A city crew of five will come out to make the repair. Four will actually work on the repair, while one sits in the truck reading the newspaper.

    -more-

    Public service unions at work, er....at rest.

    We are talking unionized city workers in Chicago; four will stand around scratching thier butts while one takes thier sweet time filling the pothole.

    But they all vote and that's the problem.

    What you all fail to realize is that if there are 4 guys there, that is 4 vaotes and $10,000 worth of union dues.
    That goes directly to the Democrats campaign chests!!!

    Probably someone from Human Resources.

    Just in case the Engineer over-looking the pot hole project gets into a disagreement with the Assistant to the Director of Material Distribution and Equipment!
