    Michael Jacobson, Tanya Triche Dawood and Sam Toia address aldermen Tuesday.

    Representatives of the hotel, restaurant and retail industry told aldermen on Tuesday businesses they represent are facing roadblocks to filling jobs as the city reopens. At the same time, a lack of childcare options is keeping some Chicagoans from returning to work, they said.

    The City Council Committee on Workforce Development met Tuesday for a subject matter hearing on resources that are available to employers, workers and labor organizations as Chicago gradually lifts business restrictions. The hearing was spurred by a resolution (R2021-445) introduced by Ald. Susan Sadlowski Garza (10), who chairs the workforce development committee, and Ald. Raymond Lopez (15).
