my second point has to do with collective bargaining. i am in a union for a fortune 500 (top 100) company that consistently makes $ billions in profit. i have no problem justifying raises coming our way and the collective bargaining of my union to get us more benefits. the way i look at it we should profit if our company profits. the problem with collective bargaining in the teachers case is that the state is not making profit they are not doing well, the united states is not doing well yet the people who are working for tax payer money want more.people need to wake up and realize if your company or state or country is not doing well you cant keep asking for more money and benefits because pretty soon you will bankrupt the hand that feeds you and then there will be no job for you to complain about.
