A Chicago man who has been out of work received a holiday meal and a job Friday.

This unexpected offer came as Juan Carlos Perez and mayoral candidate Gery Chico visited the home of Reynaldo Vargas.

Perez is the owner of Super Mas Market on West 47th Street.

When he learned that Vargas had been out of work for two months, Perez offered him a job at his store.

Vargas is expected to start his new job on Monday.
