Excellent example of how out of touch with reality liberals are

    In Chicago parents have the option of enrolling their kids in charter schools. Your hardships are your problem and not the responsibility of the Teachers Union to deal with.

    (those greedy workers want more money for working)

    whereas, Romney wants to eliminate capital gains taxes (ergo, give a raise) for wealthy people that don't work for their money

    what a world

    A 19% increase is the demand. Not 5 or 10%

    Greed indeed

    Teacher's wages are very very low and many pay for their own supplies.
    You have to have a special heart to teach our children. We need to invest in the future of our children if we want to keep the good teachers..

    Why would anyone automatically assume that the impasse/strike is the fault of the teachers?

    Apparently a 16 percent pay raise for the already highest paid teachers in the nation wasn't good enough for them. Pretty much, unions are ultimately going to fuck themselves over b/c the American people have had it with this BS.
