So the Chicago “teachers” are striking because they, being the most saintly protected, overworked, underpaid class of selfless, mass-produced Mother Theresas in the history of mankind aren’t getting, sorry, what again?
Oh, that’s right. Those selfless, all For The Children™ martyrs of society aren’t happy with not getting a twenty-something percent salary increase for their tireless, heroic 9-months-a-year with full benefits not paid for by themselves work in the bloody trenches of the Passchendaele of education. The poor saints are asked to make do with a mere 16% increase on top of an average salary of an insultingly low $76,000 a year in a city where the average worker, the ones who are still lucky enough to have work, is feasting in utter debauchery on caviar and Wagyu beef with $47,000 a year working full time.
How the hell can we expect those Heroes of the Proletariat™ to continue teaching the next generations vital skills such as rolling condoms on bananas, marching in the streets condemning the Inherent Evil of the American Imperium™ and handing out participation ribbons instead of actual grades if we keep insisting that they have to subsist on wages that would make a Czar have to choose between Champagne and Chardonnay to wash down his pate au foie gras? Huh?
At long last, have you no SHAME, American Taxpayers?
Oh, but that’s not the only inhumane inequity that those poor downtrodden demigods have to agree to, should they sign the contract and get back to work. Oh NOES! They’d also have to agree to having their performance evaluated by looking at their students’ performance! It’d be like insisting that hospitals be evaluated based on how many patients they manage to NOT kill off through malpractice! When will this oppressive horror END? What’s next? Consumer reports, QA/RA departments in private companies, an agency (let’s call it the FDA) monitoring whether or not new medications kill or cure people? Oh wait…
So to protect the rights, the RIGHTS of American Childerrrrrrnnnnn™ to receive a quality education, their alleged educators are marching in the streets refusing to provide those same children with any education at all. Makes perfect sense. If you’re a fucking maniac, that is.
Time to start handing out pink slips in numbers that would make the most modern printing press choke, take up drinking and then commit suicide.
Then, THEN we round up all of the public unions’ bosses and shoot them. In public. For fun. On pay per view. THEN we charge their relatives for the bullets.
