Reggie Phillips (R-Charleston) is an Illinois House member and also a builder with a senior assisted living facility under construction near Charleston.
It was vandalized by unions. Phillips told the East Central Reporter, “Besides busting up all the equipment they could find, whoever did this made a point of spray painting things like “‘Trump’ with a ‘not’ circle over it and ‘Rauner’ with an ‘X’ over it,” Phillips said, adding that words like “union strong” and “rat” were also sprayed across the grounds.
Also horrible, the story has been ignored. Shame on the Illinois press for ignoring this crime.
Not by Rep. Jeanne Ives (R-Wheaton), who knows the difference between right and wrong. Click this link to watch:
Meanwhile, Foxconn is reportedly focusing on Michigan to put a huge, 5,000-job manufacturing facility. Why would employers like that consider Illinois in the face of labor issues like this?
