Bruce Rauner Ruins Lives
Bruce Rauner will go down in history as one of the worst Illinois governors in history. His track record includes failing to fund Illinois' plethora of public colleges, community rape crisis centers, as well as religious and nondenominational charities and social services.

Bruce Rauners supports the notions that the minimum wage is where it should be, state workers are paid too much, and millionaire and billionaire businessmen and women deserve tax breaks. His beliefs, which are being thrust onto the Illinois public, are things many of our citizens do not believe in and are tangibly negatively affected by. It is imperative that as part of Teamsters Local 50 and citizens of Illinois, we stand up against a ruthless businessman intent on furthering his personal agenda and stuffing his pockets at the state's expense.
