USA: Vile Jewish Gangster Rahm Emanuel to Chicago City Employees: Pay Tickets or Lose Job

In his effort to balance the city’s budget, Mayor Rahm Emanuel has now reached the digging-for-change-under-the-car-seat level: he’s threatening to fire city employees with unpaid parking tickets, red light camera tickets and water bills.

City workers owe nearly $3 million in fees and fines. They have 30 days to pony up or enter a payment program that can last as long as a year. If they don’t, the Department of Revenue will garnish their wages, and they can be suspended from their jobs. Those who owe more than $1,000 could be fired. It’s a violation of the Municipal Code for city or sister agency employees to owe the city debt.

Here’s the schedule of punishments:
  •     Past-Due Amount                                           Disciplinary Action
  •     $1,000 and over                                              Discharge
  •     $500 to $1,000                                                29-day suspension
  •     $250 to $500                                                   15-day suspension
  •     Below $50                                                        10-day suspension

The city has been squeezing car owners harder in recent years. And low-paid folks do collect more parking fines, because a) they can’t afford garages, and b) they sometimes can’t pay their tickets before the fines double. Apparently, city employees struggle to pay their tickets just as much as the rest of us.
