Entitled Public School Teachers Demand That They Continue To Be Paid for Not Coming to Work

I mentioned in the side-bar the secondary effects of shutting down restaurants. All of those bartenders and waiters and waitresses now have no money to spend, and businesses are now deprived of their custom.

There's a much bigger knock-on attack on our economy: When schoolteachers refuse to, you know, teach at school, that means millions and millions of parents are forced to either remain home themselves to watch their kids instead of going to work.

The Gonzo Partisan Progressive teachers unions want this shutdown to be as economically destructive as possible, so they're insisting that we keep sending them their checks to not come to work, even as we deprive millions of parents their checks because now they can't go to work.

Great point from this twitter user: Teachers are saying it would endanger their lives to be in close proximity to children, who are proven to either not transmit covid at all or to do so at very, very low rates, while demonstrating in close proximity to adults, who do spread covid.

Another shakedown by the teachers unions.

Gee, I wonder if we offered them more money as "hazard pay" if they'd suddenly stop worrying that children who do not transmit covid will somehow transmit it to them.

Jon Davidson says teachers unions are attempting "political blackmail," and it's time to break them up.

More than any other group during this pandemic, teachers unions have shown themselves to be abjectly selfish, hyper-political, and totally intransigent about teaching during the pandemic. They are willing to lie about the science behind COVID-19 transmission and shamelessly stoke fear to advance their partisan agenda. Just about the last thing these unions seem to care about is educating children or helping the country get back on its feet.

On Monday, an alliance of teachers unions and leftist groups in dozens of states staged a "National Day of Resistance," issuing a series of demands that they say must be met before their members will return to the classroom. What do they want? Rents and mortgages canceled, a "massive infusion of federal money" from "taxing billionaires and Wall Street," moratoriums on new charter schools and voucher programs and standardized tests, and of course "police-free schools," among other things.

There you go -- "a massive infusion of federal money" right into these barely-more-educated-than-McDonalds-burger-flippers cretins' pockets.

You know the qualification required to be a 9th grade teacher, right?

A tenth grade education.

And a lot of them fail to even show proficiency with material that children are expected to be familiar with.

But yeah, let's make sure these Brave Firefighters Against Ignorance are paid as much as lawyers.

The stumbling block to reforming -- or straight up disbanding -- the teachers unions is that they put on a good show for parents and convince parents, somehow, to have less money (due to higher taxes) to give the teachers more money (even though teachers make more money than most parents).

I hope this current show of disgusting greed -- this profiteering off human misery -- wakes these people the fuck up.
