May Day protester
That's odd...people don't react to the Tea Party in the same way.
From Crain's Chicago Business:
Downtown workers may experience casual Friday and casual Monday later this month when the NATO summit arrives.BMO Harris Bank will close three of its downtown branches during NATO and PNC will shut down one.
Workers at some Chicago office towers are being encouraged to dress down to avoid being targeted by protesters during the meeting of world leaders May 20 and 21. Safety procedures in some high-rises include the recommendation that employees set aside suits, ties and anything with corporate logos.
Tenants in the office building at 1 E. Wacker Drive received a memo encouraging them to stay away from wearing suits, urging workers to "look like a protester." A spokeswoman for Los Angeles-based CBRE Inc., which manages the building, declined to comment on any NATO security measures.
At 1 S. Wacker Drive, tenants are being urged to "dress down" in order to blend with protesters, and also cautioned against wearing items or carrying bags with corporate logos. That is one of 25 downtown properties managed by Jones Lang LaSalle Inc.
Has this lack of business activity been figured into the the summit organizer's phony economic impact statement?
Hmm...if you see someone dressed like the woman in the photograph bicycling in downtown Chicago later this month--you might be gazing at a CEO.
Here are some tips for my fellow capitalists: If you end up garbing like a hippie during the NATO summit, don't wear expensive shoes or carry a Gucci briefcase. You'll be discovered.
