(CBS) — The hoax that claimed the city of Chicago would take applications for 10,000 summer jobs drew hundreds of job seekers to the Thompson Center downtown.
But many found a silver lining.
Job seekers were irate when told there was no fair, and that the jobs promised on Facebook and other social media did not exist. But the city refused to leave it at that.
“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade,” Chicago Department of Family and Support Services spokesman Matt Smith said.
