Daley blasted city employees on Wednesday, accusing them of not being customer-focused.

Mayor Daley said Wednesday that he unloaded four of Chicago’s most valuable assets for a $6 billion mountain of cash, in part, because city employees are clock-watchers who don’t think about the customers.

"They’re not customer-related. They're gonna leave at 5 o'clock. They're gonna leave at 4:30 or 4:00. I'm sorry. We're on a time clock. They walk out. But, in the private sector, when you have a customer, you're gonna stay there making sure they’re happy and satisfied," Daley said.
