This is a fight between wall street and main street.
Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.
I do have to wonder about the macro effects of unions. Just because you aren't in a union doesn't mean that you don't get a higher salary because one exists. If the private sector teaching jobs are underpaid now, I dread to imagine how bad the pay will be once the public teaching union no longer exists and the private sector no longer has to compete against their salaries.
In essence, unions may have a far reaching effect and keep even private sector salaries higher than they would otherwise be.
