Life in Rahm’s Chicago. Corporate funders spent a million bucks just yesterday in spinning the strike as a Rahm win.
Ed Reform Now, a group with overlapping funders with Democrats for Education Reform (DFER) bought a million dollar ad buy on Chicago television YESTERDAY.
Here’s what they bought.
Remember, this is the day after the Chicago Teachers Union’s House of Delegates voted 98% to suspend the strike. This ad buy was just about spin.
Who is Ed Reform Now?
They are an umbrella anti-union corporate reform outfit.
The have the usual suspects as funders and players.
Rahm’s best friends spent a million dollars on spin yesterday.
Imagine how many books that could have bought.
My colleagues in Park Ridge just voted to accept the collective bargaining agreement that contained a 2% a year raise for four years. That ad buy yesterday would have paid for the
entire four years.
Oops. Math error. It would have paid for two full years.
