So the striking teachers don't even have a strike fund? Well actually all the funds that would have been available for a union strike fund were all donated to various democratic candidate campaigns by the union leaders to buy democratic votes on legislation favoring the unions. Apparently Ya can't have everything can ya?

fire them all, they are not worth the money we waste on them now. and who's going to be here in Chicago paying the taxes to support them when they retire????

Look around you folks empty house lots, black drug gangs & dead black kids never pay taxes. So whom is going to pay the bill when it comes due?? Ha ha ha
Da mayor won't.
Chicago is turning into another Detroit a waste land of empty lots..

Lets follow the positive example WI set get rid of unions get control of expenses.
We can replace all of those teachers at less cost and better results in a few weeks.

If we only had a mayor with balls.

Give us a break - they alredy make average
$76,000 a year with benefits.

Takes 2-3 private sector employees to keep 1
public sector employee afloat.

Maobama and Emmanuel and the dumb as c-r-ap
praty set the stage here as this is a
typically run Democrat City.

By the way we didn't build this mess they did!

LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL

OK gotta go. Have to round in the hospital tomorrow and like to be there before rush hours, so I will be there by 6. Someone has to work in order to keep the checks coming for the teachers, you know.

Since the kids in this country are 25th in math and science, teachers should be paid 57% less than they are being paid right now, No bullshit. As the students improve in rank the teachers pay should go up a percentage point for every move in rankings towards first place by the students. That's fair...Right? What's more fair than that?

We all must commit to doing everything possible to end the sheer madness of unionizing public workers which led to rewarding sloth and failure as though it were success. Overpaying unions for pitiful results must STOP. They need to EARN a living by meeting STANDARDS and GOALS like everyone else.

Obama and his crowd may believe that mediocre is plenty good enough for America but most us DO NOT agree.

Yes this is correct. Our fraud commander n chief talks so much about education well we got educated alright and we see that the children are the ones that are suffering,not just in Chi but Nationwide.The teacher unions who wholly support the KING are nothing more than mafia thugs who care less about the children and more for their own benefit.They will never be satisfied and will push and push until their greed has ruined all that we have held sacred. What happened in Wisconsin should be a true example of how these thugs must be dealt with because if Emanuel gives into them than in a year or two they will have more demands then more demands.Someone has to be a man(Emanuel)and stand up to thugs and say NO,enough is enough!
