Video: Chicagoland Regulations Drive Jobs Away

Illinois Policy produced this video about Sara Travis. She wanted to build a coffee shop in Chicago. Chicago’s stifling regulatory environment drove her not just out of the city, but out of the entire state of Illinois.

Today she is in Austin, Texas, running Brew Hub and touting how much better Texas is for business than Illinois.

Stick around to see Travis note Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s failed attempt to come to Austin to poach jobs back for his war-torn Chicago.
