Teachers in Michigan Walk Out on Their Students

There is no more selfish. lazy, incompetent group of people on this planet than members of a teachers union.
One of the biggest lies you’ll ever here from them is “we’re doing it for the children.” Bullshit — every single thing you do to fleece the tax payer out of as much of their money as you can is to benefit you and your pathetic sense of self-entitlement.
Do you really believe these incompetent hacks  in Michigan really care about the children? (that’s a rhetorical question; they don’t):
The Taylor School District will be closed down Tuesday because of the high number of staff that have either called in sick or are taking personal days to attend rallies in Lansing.
Superintendent Diane Allen told Local 4 there isn’t enough teachers to cover classrooms, so the all schools will be closed for the day. She said she had heard from a principal about where the teachers were going.
The state House and Senate approved bills last week that would prohibit requiring non-union employees to financially support unions at their workplace.
As Weasel Zippers  notes, “Can you imagine how much better off this country would be if the unions disappeared?” (another rhetorical question; the answer is immeasurably better)
The proper response to all these teachers involved in this illegal work stoppage is to fire them all. Every. Last. One. Of. Them. (Under the 1935 National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), federal courts have held that wildcat strikes are illegal and that employers may fire workers participating in them.)
The rich, rich irony here is that once this law is the law of the land in Michigan, and the automatic collection of union dues from the teachers’ paychecks is stopped…and they are instead forced to write a check to the union to cover their “dues”…we’ll see exactly how much they really love their union.
Because you can bet your ass the moment they have the choice as to whether or not to voluntarily write that check…the overwhelming majority of them won’t.
The #MIUnion  protesters are pawns, rallying for the right to pay union bosses.

A real man doesn’t need a union to negotiate on his behalf for an honest salary for an honest day’s work; he does it himself. #MIunion
