    10 Stories Showing Why Mandatory Government Collective Bargaining Is Counterproductive [Michigan Capitol Confidential]



    Just some snipits ..“Less Than 0.001 Percent of Tenured Teachers Fired Over Past Five Years”: Even though

    Allegations of kissing students, head-locking children, sexual misconduct, drug use and distributing alcohol to minors was not enough to keep Michigan school districts from paying out millions to get rid of problem teachers in the past five years because of strict union-backed tenure rules


    Really ... Gym teachers making more then the police chief
    In Utica, the fire chief earns $73,440 and the police chief earns $79,000, but they are trumped by 31 physical education teachers from the local school district. The district closed four elementary schools while facing a $33 million deficit, but the vast majority of its gym teachers earn more than $80,000 per year in salary alone.


    There is more about unions on this , its disgraceful. Unions are ruining this country. They need to be stopped especially in the public sector

    Get ready for the flaming from the liberals. They don't get it. Makes you wonder who they think pays those teachers.
