    • Daily News

Chicago is in the midst of a crime wave — but there is also a question about whether police officers will show up for work.

Some 30,000 city workers are subject to the mandate, but no group has expressed more discontent than the police.

Guest: Julie Bosman, the Chicago bureau chief for The New York Times.
