The North District Department of Water Management is back in the news again because employees are strongly "encouraged" to pony up for gifts. Many of the employees will face difficult times if they do not "donate". A weak puppet Office of the Inspector General, will not investigate due to Rahm Emanuel's protectionist policies. One employee was upset because he want to get his handicapped kids some basic gifts, but the guys are forced to buy North Face Arctic Jackets instead. It is necessary to get some non-union management in place now, but Rahm would rather give some political payback at taxpayers expense. When all the money is collected, by my math, the bosses will have a few thousand dollars pocket money. Thanks Rahm and Inspector General for looking the other way.
