Rauner Says Economic Climate Hurts Families

(Chicago, IL)  —  Governor Rauner says the state’s anemic economic climate is having a personal effect on Illinois families, including his own.  Rauner told a Facebook live chat audience that the lack of job prospects is driving the next generation of workers out of Illinois.  He said that includes his own six children, none of whom live in Illinois because they were able to find better opportunities elsewhere.  Rauner admitted his wife cries about it, and he’s talked to many families who don’t see the same futures for their children in Illinois that they had.  Rauner said the pro-business reforms he’s seeking would stop that exodus.
