Ald. Burton Natarus, 42nd Ward, gives Ald. Todd Stroger, 8th Ward, a collegial pat on the head during the debate in the Chicago City Council over the proposed “Big Box ordinance” that would raise wages and benefits for employees of giant retailers like Wal-Mart and Target. The council passed the ordinance, but it was later vetoed by Mayor Daley. (Tribune photo by José M. Osorio) July 26, 2006
