Of-course better educational conditions are always tied to higher pay. I might believe them if they left out the pay increase. After all it is supposed to be about the students.

That's because students don't pay dues.......

"Better learning conditions" would include effective means to remove disruptive students from class - and administrators willing to back teachers, not cave in to angry parents

4 year college degree.....need yearly training to keep teaching permit...one teacher has to try to teach and control 30+ kids per room. And yet most teachers based on locations cost of living make just at or below middle class wages.
And the far righters scream they make that much.

yet a CEO with 4 year degree sits behind a desk has whole office full of people doing work for him and he makes 50 million and the far righters think that is fair.

TEACHERS SHOULD GET PAID DOUBLE IF NOT TRIPLE WHAT THEY MAKE.

if they wanted money they should have gotten an MBA and gone to work on Wall Street

Many teachers do also,if not most. I have a very clear and factual concept of business...A rich fat guy sits behind a desk telling people what to do he does no real work and he makes many millions.Far righters worship at his feet call him good and a true American all why he ships jobs to commie china and closes factories here and makes people go on welfare..A teacher deals with room full of spoiled brats trying to teach them with a lack of books and supplies so her or she has to buy supplies out of pocket....She or he makes almost half as much as people who have same amount of college and she or he has to listen to far righters scream how she or he is over paid.

That about sum it up.

Any striking teacher should be fired and have her teaching credentials taken away in the State.
These people are the same ones indoctrinating children in homosexual perversion and other self-destructive behaviors. When the students want to be just children and not bothered by the Marxist, atheist nonsense of the union mindset, they are identified as problems and drugged against their wills with mind altering drugs doing permanent damage to their young brains. The children then become permanent problems, which allows the union Marxist atheist mindset to invent new professions to deal with the problems they created. The answer is to eliminate the public sector unions and fire any teacher taking part in their destructive, control-freak mentality.
Anyone calling for a teacher to be fired for trying to help kids be better educated should be STRUCK DOWN AND CAST OUT OF THIS NATION....

TRAITOR!!!!!!!!!! Your a filthy pile of trash Hope you never meet me face to face OLD NAZI PIG.

Saying they are in it for better education for the kids is a lie. They have repeatedly used these false projections of their own failures to get other things and exert control over local governments they should never have. This was succinctly shown in Wisconsin. Some of them are more stupid than you.
I don't lie. I leave the lying to you hitler loving Nazi freaks.

I am glad your kind is old and almost dead. This world will be so much better off without your hate and evil demonic rantings.

It's sad, how many times you show yourself as a narcissistic fool. It's not about you. It's about the teacher union's claim of doing it for better learning conditions. If they had any real character, they could teach their children in a wood stove room with multiple grades and teach them well. It's been shown time and again, but so has the control freak nature of teacher's unions, used by larger unions to violate and control local governments.
We all know you have picture of Hitler hanging over your bed..

JUST READ YOUR POST AND THEN TRANSLATE TO GERMAN AND YOU SOUND LIKE HITLER.

WOOD STOVE ROOM?????????? This is 2014 moron....Kids cant be taught in old world room...They need to be prepared for MODERN world fool..

Your own business is a good example .... sitting behind a desk offering desperate people 40% of face value, if that.

You do no real work but make your money off of other's hardships.......yet moralize on what CEOs do.

That's rich
