Old Brach's Factory

Teresa Córdova, director of the UIC Great Cities Institute and professor of urban planning and policy, is a featured expert in a WBEZ story about manufacturing companies disinvesting in Chicago and the effect on neighborhoods that is still felt today, particularly on the city’s West Side. Cordova says that manufacturing still presents the greatest opportunity for job growth and if a company were to relocate in a neighborhood with an available workforce, the overall positive economic impact could be experienced beyond just those who are directly hired.
