Its absurd the illiteracy rates in HS grads and they want more money?
Yeah, they are probably making too much already. Fire all of them. Who needs educated kids anyway? There are private schools. Send your kids there. Oh, you do not have kids in the Chicago school system, do you? Yep, the teachers make way too much. May those kids be the ones to care for your health in the future. I am sure you will not need anyone that can read to keep you alive ever.

Chicago Teachers March in Solidarity with International Socialists
I'm not surprised. I wonder how Rahm likes being mayor of that corrupt thug-haven?

The teachers are not the problem. They are oft times demonized, it's a mistake. The unions are the problem.
... and the teachers make up the unions. The NEA is full of thugs.

Why should they have a problem to march with them? Are socialists boogeymen that have cooties?
The theme of socialism is “take” — take from those who have and distribute to those who have not. Lately, this action is couched in such words as “fairness” or “redistribute.” False prophets of this thinking assure us everyone will benefit equally. Taking is never right. “Take” is the twin brother of “steal.”
Socialism encourages idleness and playing it safe. Why work long hours, save, plan and go without to achieve if someone is going to take your achievements away from you? Why should I start early, stay late, work, play, learn, if someone will give me the wealth of another?
Socialism is simplistic in its thinking. If someone is well to do or prospering immediately they are branded as evil or a person who has been taking advantage of the less fortunate. If someone is poor her or she is called a victim who has been taken advantage of by the rich. Socialism refuses to recognize the truth that someone might be wealthy or poor because of the choices her or she made. There are many reasons for wealth or poverty and couch everything in terms of class warfare is simplistic.
Socialism is wrong because it divides. It is always spoken of in terms of the rich versus the poor, or we class people as to their gender, age, social standing, ethnicity or religion. Americans need to avoid the class warfare of socialism. We are all Americans with opportunities to learn, work, try to achieve, dream and to build.

yep, and here's an interesting breakdown of those "mostly southern" right to work states.
isn't it a bit ironic that the major political and financial failures eminate from forced unionized states ???
