Chicago Hiring More Booters

Uh-oh.

It looks like the city’s Department of Revenue is getting ready to hire more booters. Two to be exact, at least according to posting on the City of Chicago CAREERS website that Ticketmaster forwarded to us.

If you’re looking for a high paying job in a down economy, you may want to apply for this job. It pays $27.35 per hour. That’s pretty darn good.

Booters make more than Parking Ticket Geeks, that’s for sure.

My only question is, does the city pay for your bullet-proof vest or do you have to pay for it yourself?

Big thanks to Ticketmaster for the nice tip.

Here’s the posting.
