How dare the tax slaves refuse to give Public Employees raises while other citizens who live in the REAL World are loosing their homes and their jobs. Unions FIRST... Suckers! Submit to our never ending demands for more and more and more of your families hard earned money.

The overpaid and under worked taxpayer funded California State University system faculty have made their point. They can withhold their "services" by engaging in strike actions against those who pay their salaries without having any adverse impact, either on the children, or on the public at large.
This should be a learning experience for the hard working voting minority of Californians who pay taxes. The exodus should be made permanent. Isn't it about time harassed and abused overtaxed Californians close down this expensive outmoded monument to the past?
California can ill afford to pay both to maintain the gigantic welfare State the free-spending out-of-control politicians have built for the tax eaters - including Government's taxpayer supported Thug community - and still continue carrying around high paid unappreciative university faculty around on their backs.
LET'S LISTEN TO THE CHILDREN! CLOSE 'EM DOWN!

The Cal State system is receiving 650 million less next year from the state.....so what are they gonna do?
I remember when I went there, my cousins in the southern part of the U.S. paid more for their community college tuition than I paid for CSULB; we have always been heavily subsidized by the state in CA, unlike elsewhere.
It sucks to feel like the rest of the U.S.
Anyway, I'm definitely gonna feel it, as my kid is going there. His plan was an MPA (Masters in Public Administration), but seeing how the public workers have been under furloughs, and pay decreases, and the general attitude toward them, I think perhaps he'll track elsewhere.
He can be an engineer like me, construction work is good, nice bonuses, and plenty of companies to choose from.

Going by the headline, I thought the teachers were protesting BECAUSE they were getting raises! Owing to them understanding our state is close to bankruptcy.
Why did I spend a nanosecond thinking our city teachers were NOT a bunch of selfish, manipulative pieces of shidtt?

Fire all those who walk, and replace them immediately. Whoever heard of people striking with so many out of work, and losing their homes? And these "teachers" demand an increase? Fire these scumbag leeches.

Tell your kid to stick with engineering. It's the future, he'll always have a job, and with such a major influx of third world hispanic peasantry streaming in, he won't have much competition in jobs that require brainpower as a job qualifier.
