The Chicago Reader is in jeopardy after a dispute between staff and a co-owner

Transitioning to non-profit status is in peril, and if that doesn’t happen, popular alt-weekly the Chicago Reader will not have the funds it needs to continue paying staff. The union is saying this fate could be avoided if co-owner Leonard Goodman signs documents allowing the transition to non-profit to continue.

Reset gets the latest and hears how this is impacting staff.
