This make me laugh. It's all about I'm going to get mine. The sad part is that retiring teachers are making sure that young educators will never be able to retire. By the time a young teacher gets to retirement, there is going to be such a pension deficit that they will probably get half of what…

Iron, A union can be voted out at any time now. It's called a desertification election. You don't have to wait 20 years. Unions already have to have permission from their members to spend their money for political purposes. Communications Workers of America v. Beck, 487 U.S. 735 (1988) says that a…

Unions: the folks who brought you weekends? Maybe you should check your FACTS! Henry Ford brought us the 5 day work week and also doubled the salaries of his workers.
