Orland Park, IL

The people I work with are in communities that have been forgotten and left behind for decades— but they’ve been hardest hit by Bruce Rauner.


Chicago, IL

For three years, my pay raises have been stuck in limbo because of Bruce Rauner’s Department of Labor— and I’ve even missed out on paychecks due to his budget crisis.


Williamsville, IL

Bruce Rauner doesn’t respect teachers, or public education. He thinks his own agenda is more of a priority than the state’s responsibility to fund public education.


Naperville, IL

Bruce Rauner’s failed policies have had a great deal of impact on my district. Other districts in the area take in almost 2.5 times more than we do, and we’ve had to really cut down on our already tight budget.


Wood River, IL

When MAP grants weren’t being funded during Rauner’s budget crisis, I had students come tell me they weren’t sure if they were going to be able to come back to school. That uncertainty means they’re less likely to get their degree.


Oak Park, IL

The past few years under Bruce Rauner have been really scary for us. The conversation we’ve been forced to have nonstop is whether or not our schools can survive and thrive.


East Chatham, Chicago

Bruce Rauner wouldn’t approve a budget for almost three years and as a result, there were lay-offs at CSU. I was one of the first of the 300 people who got let go.


Midlothian, IL

Before Bruce Rauner became governor, we had a large amount of substitute teachers and paraprofessionals. Now, if I’m sick, I have to think about how that is going to affect my students.


Waterloo, IL

Between the cost of child care and the uncertainty of the job environment, being a laborer and fighting to make sure my family has what we need really just feels like I’m always fighting against Bruce Rauner.
