Dominick’s Grocery Chain Shuts Down Most Of Illinois Operation, 5,633 Jobs Will Likely End With 3,244 Being In Cook County (Chicago)

But wait… isn’t Chicago the economic model Barack Obama and his ilk want to replicate nationally? Say goodbye to Dominick’s in Illinois.

Dominick’s has put a number on the possible job losses when the grocery store moves out of the Chicago market late next month.

According to a state report, the company may lay off up to 5,600 people.

The grocery chain, which will close any unsold stores Dec. 28, could shed 5,633 jobs in Illinois, including 3,244 in Cook County alone, according to the monthly Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, also known as the WARN report.

Parent company Safeway Inc. said last week that Dominick’s employed 6,600 employees in Illinois.

More than 3,000 jobs lost in Chicago alone?

In Obama’s defense he did promise change.

      and they can have it along with that shithole Detroit!

      I hope that’s a reference to that dumb-ass greedy teacher… but either way it sounds racist, even to me, and I’m the last person to call something racist. That’s why all the idiots think that non-liberals are all racist.

        But it’s true!

      Chicago belongs to the Corrupt Politicians

  • Robert Garnsey

    I do not believe Black people caused the problems, it was the LIBERALS and they come in all colors…

  • John Dedon

    Agree Liberals and over taxing, over regulating and lack of accoutability by individual.

    I couldn’t happen to a nicer city. Can we just fence off the entire state of Illinois and abandon it to its own designs and elections? I’m sick of hearing about how bad things are there. Those people are getting that for which they voted. Liberalism is its own demise, but it ruins lives, cities, and nations on its way down.

      I lived there when Daley was mayor and although it was liberal it was a lovely city. I hate to tell you that when the blacks moved in they were like termites and destroyed everything in their path. They were taking over everything as they moved west out of the city. I had a friend and neighbor that was a black doctor and he sold his house that was near Oak Park and moved out of the city. I asked him why and his exact words were “I’m not going to live with niggers”. I nearly lost my teeth. That was in approximately ’68 or ’69. It’s been down hill since then.

      As a person living in southern IL, I would agree with you about that garbage pit up north but once you head south and after getting half way down, then you see what IL is about. We have been trying to break away from that pit now for quite a while.

      • LarryECollins

        I understand! We’d like to ring-fence Austin too! Maybe you guys should split the state in half and prosper! I’m sure your taxes would be MUCH less.

    Let the exodice (sp) begin!

    Good Job my boys let those sorry bastards starve

  • Sharpshooter

    Rahm and the head Muslim must be so proud! Creating more unemployment is what they do best!

  • Ryan Ehlis

    The problem is SIN! Unless we as a nation return to bible values and morality it will only get worse. The NWO psychos in our govt are only a symptom of the sin problem in our country. 9-11 false flag, and these false flag shootings are a result of a totally corrupt fed govt. We will repent of abortion, and gay/lesbian agenda or we will destroy ourselves from within. The economic rollercoaster is Gods way of getting our attention, but is it working? In the law God requires life for life, so unless there is true repentance and abortion is outlawed in our nation judgement will destroy the US. The bible is true.

  • Ryan Ehlis

    Democrat vs Republican is only a smokescreen for the clueless sheeple. The bushes where just as corrupt as obama and they are in it together.

  • Linda Bartram

    so you agree with fucking Obama but your are right hes not black hes a muslin hes only 5% black that’s no more then a black head on his ass

  • Linda Bartram

    hepaid the liberals

  • Doubleace

    call it what you want but large cities draw leeches who bleed the working taxpayers dry. at some point the working class realize they can do better by leaving the cities, and the revenue base leaves, but the leeches continue to multiply. The system needs to change or we are all going down. We cannot to support people who are to lazy to work. Generational welfare is a recipe for disaster

  • chaloner

    Liberals are piece of sh!t animals!

  • David

    Cronyism only works for as long as the rest of the people don’t know who the cronies ARE…Chicago, LA, DC, the White House, and more are going to meet their just ends eventually…if they keep screwing the majority (working citizens) for the benefit of the SMALLEST minority(wealthy politicians and bankers), it’s gonna get UGLY, and FAST.

  • extyrequeen

    i blame this on the idiot voters who elect these bufoons…..they deserve what they get and when they get their taxes raised or get laid off they complain about it…..your fault….
