as Chicago and NYC dish out eye-watering contracts: Windy city shelter nurse rakes in $20,000 in a WEEK
As buses of asylum seekers keep arriving in New York City and Chicago, the two cities continue to hemorrhage money as they use emergency contracts to set up the infrastructure needed to tackle the surge.
Both cities have already spent millions from their own budgets as they look to care for the surge of asylum seekers, as conservative governors from southern states continue busing them north as a way to protest what they see as open-arms immigration policies by Democrats.

A manager was paid $14,000 for just one week of work, and a nurse earned an eye-watering $20,000 for a week in December. Both invoices included overtime.
