LPCC Welcomes New Members

The Lincoln Park Chamber of Commerce has joined a coalition of businesses and their employees in response to the proposed Restrictive Scheduling Ordinance. The Chicago City Council is considering unprecedented Restrictive Scheduling legislation which will make Chicago the only city in the country penalizing employers in every industry who offer flexible scheduling options to their employees making $50,000 or less.

Thank You, Lauren!
