Have those teachers ever thought of where the city is going to get the money to pay them?

You would think they would know about the city's financial problems

    You think Unions care about the burdens they place on tax payers. Politicians will raise taxes or sell bonds to raise the money that teachers demand. A regular on this site boasts of the generous package he receives as a teacher and he boasts that he can never be fired. Why else is every Democrats controlled city drowning in debt except for shady deals between Union leaders and their friendly Democrat politicians. When Detroit went bankrupt, the teacher's union insisted that their members' contracts were inviolable because of some clause in the State's Constitution. That's how duplicitous the partnership between Unions and Democrats has been for decades. The Unions managed to get their friendly Democrat politicians to insert their demands into the State's Constitution. The Union was outraged when the judge ruled that that devious ploy would not protect their contracts from being renegotiated.

    They don't care. If they did, they wouldn't vote for the idiots that caused the problems they are protesting to begin with.

    Unfortunately the people that adhere to the radical and extremist democrat agenda.... like most Teachers.... do not care that their greed is harmful to the nation.

      Greed in being paid to do a job?   I'd like to see YOU work for free, for the betterment of the nation of course...   My cousin, a teacher, could get paid more babysitting two kids than she can babysitting 30 kids in her classroom.
