Keep Fucking That Chicken

I swear to you I’ve never seen a newspaper try so hard to fail.

Aggrego’s workers, some recruited from Journatic, are beginning to report on suburban events and news despite the fact that Sun-Times reporters already are covering some of those areas.

The Chicago Newspaper Guild, which represents about 140 employees at the Wrapports newspapers, opposes the company’s shifting of work to Aggrego. It has been in negotiations on a new contract for more than a year with Aggrego increasingly an issue.

“We believe, based on the facts we have, it violates the law,” said Craig Rosenbaum, the union’s executive director. “They can’t subcontract out. That’s our work — that’s our jurisdiction.”

Competing with yourself. Because WHY NOT. That makes total sense, doing the same job twice, especially when money is tight.
