Some interesting #twill things from @UpshotNTY's #IL12 data collected last week: github.com/TheUpshot/2018…
For reference, the overall results show a very close race in a swingy district that went Obama/Obama/Trump, and was originally drawn for a conservative Dem incumbent, but has been Republican since 2014. nytimes.com/interactive/20…
The candidates are two-term incumbent Mike Bost (R) and St. Clair County state's attorney Brendan Kelly (D). Bost won 54-40 in 2016, with the Green Party candidate taking 6%.

The vendor listed on the state contracts is "Correctional Healthcare Companies", which merged with Correct Care in 2014

In his "blind-trust commitments", Rauner promised he would donate "any proceeds from investment interests that I may hold that have any contract with the State of Illinois"

Has he donated his profits from Correct Care? Are there other investments like this?

THREAD: What is the #JanusvAFSCME case, which the Supreme Court heard yesterday, about? What is the expected result and the aftermath?
1/ In #JanusvAFSCME, the Supreme Court is considering whether to overturn a prior case that allowed public sector unions to establish “agency shop” arrangements with their government employers, which require the union to represent the interests of all employees.
2/ The arrangement requires unions to represent non-union employees. It also requires non-union employees to pay a "fair share" fee so they don't free ride on the efforts of the union, which are primarily funded through member dues.

THREAD: What is wage theft, why is it an epidemic in Illinois, and how will I stop it? #twill
1/ "Wage theft" is when an employer fails to pay an employee wages that they're owed. For example, if your employer doesn't pay you overtime that you worked, that's wage theft.
2/ It's also wage theft when an employer doesn't pay the minimum wage or doesn't give you vacation pay that you're entitled to. Wage theft also occurs when an employer calls you an "independent contractor" when you're not.
