Chicago has been torn to shambles, stores and businesses have been boarded up, and the city has seen a record amount of violence in the past two weeks.
On top of that companies are now threatening to leave the city of Chicago and go elsewhere.
If you ask me, they definitely should leave because I promise you that things are only going to get worse for the Windy City as Democrats continue to push their dumb policies as a knee jerk reaction to an unfortunate event.
Now, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is begging companies like Walmart and other retailers not to leave after the destruction it has experienced.
Mayor Lightfoot said she’s hopeful major retailers will reopen the Chicago stores that were looted or otherwise damaged during protests surrounding George Floyd’s killing by police in Minnesota. But, she’s unsure of one of the biggest.
Mayor Lightfoot said she was on a conference call with Walmart and other major retailers that had stores looted or heavily damaged during the unrest in Chicago. She said she pleaded with them to not abandon Chicago.
“I think in the case of Walmart, what they were focused on was assessing the damage. They are doing an effort to donate fresh produce, to the extent of what’s left so it doesn’t perish, and other perishables, and they are taking their time, as I would expect.”
It looks like many businesses are wanting to follow the same idea as Minneapolis-based manufacturing plant 7-Sigma Inc. which is leaving Minneapolis after being based there since its conception in 1987.
They don’t care about my business,” said Kris Wyrobek, president and owner of 7-Sigma Inc., in south Minneapolis. “They didn’t protect our people. We were all on our own.”
Wyrobek said the plant, which usually operates until 11 p.m., shut down about four hours early on the second night of the riots because he wanted to keep his workers out of harm’s way. He said a production supervisor and a maintenance worker who live in the neighborhood stuck around to keep watch over the business. He said they became alarmed when fire broke out at the $30 million Midtown Corner affordable housing apartment complex that was under construction next door.
A manufacturing company that has been in Minneapolis since 1987 has decided to leave the city.
The company’s owner said he can’t trust public officials who allowed his plant to burn during the recent riots: “They don’t care about my business.” https://t.co/rMcZgudJCb
