The crimes you listed all have victims, that's why they are and should continue to remain punishable. The guy smokin pot isn't hurting anyone, so no victim combined with proven failed policy, just like prohibition and just like gun control is my logic.

How about this for a brand strategy for GREDF - don't take public funds from local and county sources and then have as many Tri-State Summits as you want on your own dime.

Love the "tip of the iceberg".... If you trust anything that is calculated from a model that cannot be verified then I worry about you.

Group of state workers receives raises, despite no contract

2 years, 3 months ago by Bob Gough

From sj-r.com: About 1,500 unionized workers at the Illinois Department of Transportation and other agencies received raises last month, even though their union is still negotiating a new contract with the state.

The workers, members of General Teamsters/Professional & Technical Employees Local 916, received 3 percent wage increases Jan. 1, Gov. Pat Quinn’s administration confirmed.

The raises were awarded even though the contract covering the workers expired June 30 and a new agreement has not been negotiated.

The Teamster raises were awarded at the same time as negotiations with the largest state employee union, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, have ground to a halt and the union has advised members to prepare for the possibility of a strike.
