Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner has supported a lawsuit to keep state workers getting paid. But he’s refused to extend that support to a similar case brought by human service contractors.
The governor was recently asked to answer this question: Why treat state employees as superior to employees of human service providers?
RAUNER: "Inside government, those folks are working every day, and they should be paid. They should have a continuing appropriation.”
MACKEY: “But human service workers are working every day, too.”
