The publicly-funded agency that manages Navy Pier and McCormick
Place has increased its number of six-figure staff, despite the
fact that the agency lost $3.6 million last year and is projecting a
$28.8 million loss for its current fiscal year.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports the full story in its Jan. 4 investigation of the payroll records for the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority, known as McPier.
 
Should taxpayers pay for higher salaries when McPier is losing money as conventions abandon Chicago for warmer and cheaper locations?
