Thousands Stand in Line at Chicago Job Fair that Doesn't Offer Jobs

People wait for hours to discover information on how to apply for government jobs, not interviews

About 3,000 people lined up for the city's first-ever jobs fair on Friday – some of them waiting in line for up to six hours – hoping to apply for work with the city, but many left frustrated after learning the only way to apply for a job was to go online.

WBBM Newsradio's Bernie Tafoya reports Mayor Rahm Emanuel stopped by the job fair, expecting a warm welcome from job seekers, but instead ran into lots of ticked-off people.
