Asked to work a 7 hour day, Chicago teachers go on strike
Yep, you read that right. Forget for a minute nowhere in the private sector would a group who ranks near the bottom in performance, in a company that is going bankrupt go on strike for a raise and shorter work week and fewer performance measures. Well, not without getting fired anyway. But this isn’t the private sector. It’s the Public Unions. It’s Chicago, Illinois where reality is suspended and the taxpayer is an ATM for membership.

That totals just over 1,000 teaching hours a year.
