    Mayor 1% MOBI ê Paperback mayor book, Mayor 1% PDFEPUBHerein lies a tale of the love of money For that is Mr Emanuel's driving indeed his only principle Whether he is raising it for himself or the politicians he represents his entire career has been given over to its pursuit If you are an investment banker which Mr Emanuel was for a brief highly profitable time that is certainly to be expected If you are a member of the Democratic party well that calls into uestion your fidelity to the basic planks of the Democratic platformAnd as this book shows in a methodical even handed tone Mr Emanuel does not appear to hold those political principles in high regard He is dismissive of minorities and the poor and outright contemptuous of unions He never met a privatization scheme he didn't like and the

    Mayor 1% MOBI ê Paperback mayor book, Mayor 1% PDFEPUB4 stars An investigative review of Rahm Emanuel’s early political career and first two years as mayor of Chicago as well as some of the resistance movements that emerged during that time Touches on the Mental Health Movement CTU teachers strike school closure fight city budget battles O’Hare janitors strike and NATOG8 organizing I thought the book shared important information but jumped around from 2011 2013 events due to focus on individual fights rather than a linear timeline It also explored some issues deeply mental health clinic closures CTU resistance but left me wanting on others organizing for the UChicago trauma center reparations ordinance and Dyett hunger strike I think this book will be most revealing for people who didn’t live through that time in Chicago andor aren’t as familiar with Rahm’s pre Obama era career in Congress and the Clinton Whit

    Mayor 1% MOBI ê Paperback mayor book, Mayor 1% PDFEPUBWith Democrats like these who needs RepublicansI'll lay it right out I don't like Rahm Emanuel I haven't since he described people working to improve the worst healthcare in the developed world as fucking retarded and on drugs and as a Chicagoan with a spouse who works in education very little I've learned since then has improved my attitude As such I was pretty much perfectly tuned to enjoy this book And it was pretty good but I wasn't in love with itI think part of the problem is that it's not really about Emanuel except insofar as he was around for the activities depicted within The cover of Mayor 1% has those words in huge letters and Rahm Emanuel and the Rise of Chicago'

    Mayor 1% MOBI ê Paperback mayor book, Mayor 1% PDFEPUBIf you disliked Rahm Emanuel before you read this book you will positively loathe him by the endEmanuel was involved in pushing NAFTA under Clinton and the 3 strike laws that filled the prisons with non violent offenders Then aided by now Governor Rauner he worked in the financial sector briefly earning over 16 million from the foreclosure problems that beset Fannie and Freddie and from insider trading Under Obama he convinced him not to break up the big banks or offer a public option in health insurance As mayor he screwed the unions who had previously supported him particularly the teachers His fight with the CTU takes up a lot of the book With Rauner and a group of millionaires as his allies he went after public schools in poor neighborhoods By turning them into charters he could pay teachers as much as 30000 less for longer hours Rather than trying to solve the gang problems sexual abuse psychologica

    Mayor 1% MOBI ê Paperback mayor book, Mayor 1% PDFEPUBThis book is about Rahm Emanuel like Waiting for Godot is about Godot In other words it's not about Emanuel at all This book is basically an encyclopedia of the various protests and strikes that have taken place during Emanuel's time in office told entirely from the perspective of the protesters I think the author spent time researching the lives of individual protesters than she spent researching Rahm Emanuel Instead of giving us a look inside the mayor's office that we normally wouldn't have a chance to see or providing a real analysis of his policies and actions this

    Mayor 1% MOBI ê Paperback mayor book, Mayor 1% PDFEPUBI knew Rahm Emanuel was terrible but I had no idea just how terrible until I read this book From his days on the board of Freddie Mac when it laid the groundwork for the global financial crisis to his budget scheming and shady privatizing deal making this man is truly the scum of the earth Everyone should read this book to know what we’re up against to make a better world

    Mayor 1% MOBI ê Paperback mayor book, Mayor 1% PDFEPUBAt times the book goes into too much unnecessary detail and is repetitive The final sixty pages were a slog Better to read contemporary newspaper or magazine stories on Rahm’s tenure

    Mayor 1% MOBI ê Paperback mayor book, Mayor 1% PDFEPUBWow What an eye opener I am uite disturbed about what I read in this book You hear taglines on the news about how the middle class is disappearing but I didn't give any thought to why One of the first things Mayor Emanuel did when elected to office was set about to privatize a lot of services that government workers were doing And once again you may hear about these things in the news but it doesn't really hone in on the human aspect of these broad decisions I'll take one for instance in the book to give you an idea The Chicago emergency management office decided to privatize the call center to an overseas based company so several government workers were laid off And of course these moves are always cloaked in the verbiage of saving the city moneyto cut the budget But these workers had been there for some 10 plus years Now they are unemployed trying t
