Chicago Teachers Union boss lambastes Obama crony Pritzker

Hyatt billionaire and Obama crony Penny Pritzker resigned from the Chicago Board of Education yesterday, possibly paving the way for her to be nominated to be the next Labor Secretary. Here's what Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis said about Pritzker:
"[Pritzker] has a long and storied history as being an anti-labor, anti-worker kind of boss. She has supported policies that have had an adverse impact on working-class families and their children. We cannot imagine that someone who has a long history of bludgeoning Chicago's working families and destroying public schools would be given a platform to continue these sorts of business practices on a national level."
