Illinois Budget Impasse Jeopardizes Hundreds Of Student Jobs At Northeastern Illinois University - Tony Arnold, WBEZ

About 260 Northeastern Illinois University students may be forced out of their campus jobs because of a new rule put in place as a result of the Illinois’ ongoing budget impasse. Since Jan. 1, state universities haven’t been getting any state money because lawmakers and Gov. Bruce Rauner have not approved a budget. Court orders have kept much of the state government operating, except for universities and social services. Each university is affected differently by the impasse, depending on tuition rates, enrollment and available cash reserves. For Northeastern, in Chicago’s Albany Park neighborhood, the budget impasse means the administration is negotiating furlough days for civil service employees.
