As Ryan Ori of Crain's reports, workers in the building at 1 S. Wacker Drive are being urged to "dress down" on May 20 and 21 during the NATO Summit in order to blend in with protesters. He said that companies are also warning not to wear items or carry bags with corporate logos. Crain's in-house lunchtime reporter, Danny Ecker interviewed Ryan Ori today about his thoughts of how businesses and their workers are preparing for NATO and asked Ryan if he planned on wearing a suit in two weeks, to which he replied "My tie-dye shirt is at the dry cleaners, but it'll be ready in time".
