Quote:Teachers ditch school kids to protest vote on right-to-work

Two Michigan school districts closed Tuesday after hundreds of teachers called out, likely so they could participate in union protests tied to the expected passage of "right-to-work" legislation this week in the state capital.

Demonstrators have already started to march down the streets, as lawmakers return to put the final touches on legislation that would bar unions from demanding dues from workers. The move would make Michigan the 24th "right-to-work" state and strike a blow to organized labor in the heart of the U.S. auto industry.

I do not have a problem with teachers or other government workers forming or belonging to unions.

I have a HUGE problem with them having the ability to strike.

This isn't getting rid of unions. It's stopping them from forcing workers to join the union. Not everyone wants to be a part of a union.

Or with them pulling a stunt like this and having so many members of the union call out that the students themselves suffer.

I know guys, I was just making a statement.

The fact that an employee who collects their paycheck from taxes can have a day off simply by picketing with some other union infuriates me. People should have the freedom to join--and NOT join--any unions they want.

I don't know what all the fuss is, I'm sure the teachers are doing this for the good of the children. It's all about the children, and I can't believe you guys are so callous as to not be thinking about the children.

If teacher's can't pay off student loans on their salaries, you'll start seeing less and less qualified teachers. It does become about the students, eventually.

Schooling costs are the governments fault. If it weren't for government aid, the price if going to school wouldn't be so astronomical.
