It’s as if Karen Lewis, president of the Chicago Teachers Union, just likes to protest in the streets.
Hey, it beats going on a diet.
Sorry to make a rude fat joke here, but the fact is, relative to the average Chicago resident, the teachers are quite fat economically. Their strike is hurting the poor parents of that city far harder than it is hurting anyone else. The union is irresponsibly striking to get a raise and to maintain benefits that the city cannot afford.
They can’t get the current economic situation, which they helped create, through their thick skulls.
