Chicago Is Apparently Now Bouncing Checks to City Employees

This is not good:

This video apparently shows a woman who works for the city of Chicago trying to cash a paycheck, but the bank teller is informing her that there is no money in the account from which the paycheck is supposed to be withdrawn from.

Now, I have no idea if this is actually the case. It wouldn’t surprise me if there were a more mundane/technical answer than simply “The City of Chicago is out of money.”

But if it’s true that Chicago can no longer afford to pay city employees, then watch out. That’s not good. That’s Detroit levels of incompetence and mismanagement.
