The teachers are only asking for what all of us want: bigger paychecks, less work, and the bonus that they cannot be evaluated for continued employment or advancement based on their job performance. Everybody, maybe excepting a few billionaires, thinks they are overworked and underpaid.
Don't blame the unions, as they are only trying to do what they were formed to do: all of the above. Of course, they have a healthy slush fund of members' dues. which they dutifully use to to feed treats to their lapdogs in the Legislature. Again, this is what they are paid to do.
If there is anyone left out there, who is not a union member, who thinks unions are good for the country, I hope you win a union job that doesn't get transferred to a right-to-work state.
