NOTHING STOPS A BULLET LIKE A JOB

"However, Illinois lost 125,000 manufacturing jobs between 2008 and 2014, according to the Illinois Policy Institute. While other Great Lakes states have regained manufacturing jobs after the Great Recession, Illinois has not."

" 'Two business policy issues relate directly to a state's ability to attract good manufacturing jobs: Right-to-Work policy and workers' compensation policy,'  Illinois Policy's Michael Lucci wrote in September 2014, two months before Bruce Rauner was elected governor.
