This Sept. 10, 2012 file photo shows Chicago teachers walk walking a picket line outside a school in Chicago, after they went on strike for the first time in 25 years. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has said if the Illinois Legislature _ which passed a historic measure last week to address the state’s worst-in-the-nation public pension shortfall _ doesn’t deal with Chicago’s own multibillion-dollar pension problem next, city services could suffer in the future, with more teachers loosing their jobs.
