Regarding public school teachers striking again and fair wages: How much an hour do you earn? Is it $15, $30, $50 an hour? Does receiving more money make a person better at his or her job?
Do you show up at your work's front door for 180 days a year, or 250?
Public servants are allowed to have organized labor unions in Pennsylvania, and when our schoolteachers strike, this reflects on the total state as being a poor place for companies to have a workforce! Ever hear of Pennsylvania being called the strike-happy state?
Think, people. What has happened to our manner of instructing our kids to grow up to be upstanding people and have the ability to earn a living? Just how long do students spend in a classroom learning each day? Busing, lunch, moving from classroom to classroom, and then settling in -- how much time is left for the teacher to get the child to learn?
