    Then there should be no difficulty in you demonstrating just that.

    Silly and rather pointless tactic. But you can re-read the article from the op.

    Yes, I read the article. And it fails to contain the exact language in question.

    Does it mention that they were suspended for using sick time inappropriately?

    Without the specific contract language and other relevant information, its just speculation.

    You think the governor speculated on the language? But, does it say they were suspended for using sick leave inappropriately?

    I am throwing the BS flag, ths is the silliest post I've read in some time.

    More progressive employers have rejected the medieval "sick day" concept in favor of simply time away from work based on a contractual reward for time served on the job or a matter of an agreed upon contract clause.

    Here is the fact, the Governor did what he did, if you want to prove it to be wrong, go ahead and try, I don't have to show anything, the deed is done. Common sense tells me that will all the s**t going on with the unions, that this was well looked into before the action was taken. If not … then shame on him.

    Now on the other hand, if these teachers could have taken a personal day or vacation day to avoid being fired, and were too damn stupid to do so, then I have to wonder what they are doing in the teaching profession to begin with.

    It is in my mind the equivalent of stealing.
    i believe the word you are looking for is "fraud".
