MI Schools Close as Teachers Call-In Sick to Protest

By | December 10, 2012

Michigan teachers are calling in sick Tuesday as part of a massive protest effort against the state’s new Right to Work legislation that has just passed in the financially struggling state. At least two school districts are closed Tuesday after discovering more than half their teachers will not be working.

The bill would allow workers at union-represented employers to not pay dues even though the union would be bargaining on their behalf. Advocates of the bill say it will help attract business to the state which has unemployment over 9%;  while unions, who represent over 17% of the workers, believe this bill will weaken their bargaining position by cutting financial resources.

Governor Rick Snyder is expected to sign the bill into law Tuesday.

    Fire the socialist teachers that brainwash children and get good teachers who care more about children and less about union goons.
