Mayor Rahm Emmanuel just got told no.
He told all the city departments to dump the stock their retirement funds had in a really good investment. Gun manufacturing.
The firefighters fund told him no.
The Chicago Firefighters Annuity and Benefits fund knows profit when it sees profit.
The have some stock in Smith & Wesson. It has lept in value since Mayor Emmanuel was Chief of Staff at the White House.
Gee, I wonder why.
Way to go, Firefighters. Make lots of money for your retirement so the taxpayers do not have to chip in.
