Oh, oh, I am so glad that a picture from these protests have received a DD! Congrats, and excellent work!

I understand that there are some issues with the unions (protecting bad teachers) however, to solve those issues, there is finesse work required, not total abolishment! Taking away the unions would strike down the good with the bad, and there are so many more good teachers that I had than ones that need to go! I enjoy that workers can be paid living wage, overtime pay, don't get locked into factories and on and on and on. I believe how many US based companies treat their workers in foreign countries show what is in store if we get rid of all the unions...

Not to mention the other issues in the bill as well...

Thank you for braving the comment system and putting up this wonderful picture!

Unions need to go down. Banned. illegalized. Put down... There traps that hurt real businesses and suck all the money out of the state and into something that could run just as easily with 15% of the money. You want to see greedy people??? these are them

Beautiful shot, and congratulations on the DD! As the daughter of a hard-working, well-respected GB teacher who went down for a day of protesting, I can really appreciate this image. Just praying now that the salary cuts are the worst that happens... and that's going to be hard enough, even with the multiple jobs my dad works to support our family.
