Chicago Union workers work under extreme weather conditions to make sure homeowners get water into their homes. If you have no water, you will have no heat, many Chicago homes have boilers that require water. This van is stuck in ice because the leak was left for an extended amount of time. Today, it was brought to my attention, private contractors will be issued Chicago Safety Vests and will pretend to be Chicago Employees making repairs to the Chicago Water System. Not residents, not drug tested, and no background checks. Photo by Patrick McDonough.
