First Deputy Commissioner Department of Family and Support Services
1615 W. Chicago Ave.
John Pfeiffer seems like a great guy, with just a touch the evangelical Christian in him… which I will admit makes me nervous, but I think people should pay close attention to him. If someone does get all disenchanted and starts talking out of school it’s my bet it will be John.
Commissioner Department of Family and Support
Chicago, IL 60622
The new Commissioner presently runs an organization that tries to blend organized money’s pursuit of profits over people with providing services for the common good of ordinary people. The Chicago Workforce Investment Council is that organization. They see people as human commodities. What they do is connect people to the skills they need to serve corporate needs. Think of it as a “just in time” inventory model for human beings and if that makes you feel a littlee queasy it should. http://www.cwic.org/WhoWeAre/FundersandPartners.aspx. If it reminds you of the Clinton era retraining schemes that’s because that’s what it is. http://sociology.berkeley.edu/public_sociology_pdf/weir.pdf. Worse yet, just like ending “Welfare as we know it” this will produce similar results just on a city-wide basis. http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0341/is_4_56/ai_70460016/. The poor need to brace themselves.
