Teachers, teachers, teachers...

So, a new parallel in my life...Just found out that some teachers in our School District are picketing in front of our City Hall. They are negotiating their salaries for their new contract. In Puerto Rico, the same happened a few weeks back.

One of our teacher's complaints are the co-pays they will have to pay with their health insurance. In Puerto Rico, first of all, teachers are not allowed to picket. The teachers in Wauwatosa should go and see what the teachers in the Island earn, and in what conditions are schools in Puerto Rico ; Wauwatosa teachers are lucky they still can exercise their right to picket without fearing retaliation.

I think the teachers in our district should realize how good they have it, and how ridiculosly high insurance premiums are everywhere else...welcome to our world!
