From the September-October 2014 issue of News & Letters
Chicago–Altgeld Gardens residents picketed the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) on June 26. They told News & Letters that the CHA contracts with Walsh Construction to work on housing projects like Altgeld Gardens, which is 97% Black. But Walsh refuses to follow Section 3, which requires 30% of new hires to be CHA or low-income Chicago area residents. Picketers said that Walsh won’t hire community residents or African Americans at all, even residents who are qualified and have union cards.
