Mary Bell, Wisconsin Union Leader Tells Teachers to go Back to Work

 

What a novel concept, teachers going back to work to teach children …

From the WAPO, the head of the Wisconsin teacher’ union, Mary Bell, is calling for the AWOL teachers to return to the classrooms and do their job that they are being paid for. Mary Bell is president of the Wisconsin Education Association Council. I am guessing that the teachers will be returning to their respective schools with their fake doctor’s notes at the ready. Or maybe they will have a note signed by Epstein’s mother’s doctor? Let’s hope none of the teachers give the students “Walker’s pneumonia”.

The head of  Wisconsin’s powerful teachers’ union is calling on educators to return to classrooms Monday and Tuesday rather than continue being absent to protest an anti-union bill at the state Capitol.

Well, the teachers are probably not going back to class on Monday, isn’t it President’s Day?

      Does not appear that Wisconsin teachers
      wish to participate in the financial hardships
      endured by the lowly private sector taxpayer. Let the
      ‘private sector’ bear the burden while the
      teachers remain aloof and comfortably pampered.
      The taxpayers are growing their own grassroots
      union called the “Tea Party”.

      I hope the spoiled babies stay out of work. They rather see lay offs then taking a little less.

      I’m sure there are plenty of people who will work in their places and are qualified.

      Below is article of today from the Huffington Post.

      Also, I have a suggestion in a commercial against Walker…. use the clip of Carl Rove talking about busting unions and how it would shrink the moneys for Democrats.

      Wisconsin after Citizens United
      By Miranda | February 25, 2011 – 3:08pm
      In the Huffington Post today, People For President Michael Keegan looks at what happens after corporations get unlimited influence in elections. In Wisconsin, big corporate funders not only have elected officials willing to unpopular and anti-populist policies, but also have instant access to decision makers:

      The story of the year since Citizens United v. FEC may be perfectly crystallized in the fight that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is waging against his state’s public employee unions. Organizations like Americans for Prosperity spent millions of dollars in 2010 running misleading ads bashing health care reform, progressives, immigrants, and American Muslims in order to elect politicians who would stand up for the interests of big business. Now those interests are working hard, and spending a little extra money, to make sure they collect on their investments.

      The real story behind the protests in Wisconsin has little to do, as Gov. Walker would have you believe, with a state-level push for fiscal responsibility. It has everything to do with the changing dynamics of money and influence in national politics. Pro-corporate politicians have never liked the power wielded by unionized workers. Last year, in Citizens United v. FEC, the Supreme Court handed them the tools do to something about it, paving the way for a wave of corporate money that helped to sweep pro-corporate politicians into power in November. Citizens United also increased the power of labor unions, but union spending was still no match for money pouring into elections from corporate interests. As Rachel Maddow has pointed out, of the top 10 outside spenders in the 2010 elections, 7 were right-wing groups and 3 were labor unions. Gov. Walker’s attempt to obliterate Wisconsin’s public employee unions, if it succeeds, could be the first of many attempts across the country to permanently wipe out what are the strongest political opponents of the newly empowered corporate force in American politics.
