Bumped Up. Chicago’s Teacher’s Strike Enters Week 2 Today
There is a terrific piece at Hot Air scribed by one Matt Vespa. Here is the key paragraph:
As the Chicago teachers’ strike continues, we’ve learned that they make $71-76,000 a year and they turned down a 16% pay increase, which amounts to $11,360. They work nine months out of the year, but say that this strike is benefits oriented. However, given that ABC World News didn’t even air this story last Sunday and most of the media, with the exception of CBS, failing to mention the compensation statistics in their broadcast – suffice to say that the media will probably ignore the fact that almost 40% of Chicago’s public school teachers send their kids to private schools.
The choice of liberals is no choice for the average American.
I encourage you to go read Vespa’s entire piece. It is a stunner.
