It's the first of March, and most of the kids in the state of Washington still are not in school. Does anyone actually know why? Are you still going with the "It's not Safe" excuse? Well, we're the last to think that still. Washington ranks 47th within the 50 states on getting their kids back to school. states an independent research site Burbio.com Why? One word - Unions.
The teacher's Unions have kept our kids out of school because they don't want to go back. The science shows that it has nothing to do with safety; if it did, they'd be back already. How ironic is it that the Teachers Unions are overriding the science now and coming up with all sorts of bizarre excuses as to why they can't go back? Do you know all of them are still getting paid? Yes, your tax dollars are still going to pay all of the Washington state teachers sitting at home not working.
Now some teachers are working full time, and for that, we must give them credit. But how mad must the actually working teachers be doing their job while all of the other teachers who aren't working are still getting paid! I would be mad as heck!
Many states are back 100%! Large states like Florida have large populations of the elderly. Unlike California that still has virtually everything shut down, Florida smartly only partially shut down, and they had fewer deaths and fewer elderly deaths. Maybe because they didn't require everyone to sit in the same house for over six months and only allow them to go to the only super spreader spot open in every town, which was the Grocery store - WA and every other state that did a total shutdown. Or that they didn't put all the sick elderly in with the healthy ones like New York - stupid.
Have you heard about the issue in Chicago? The Liberal Mayor can't even get her teachers back to work. Is this a shock in the most Unionized state in the country? It shouldn't be. The Unions in Chicago have demanded $100's of millions in school upgrades and changes to including so-called Hazard pay..., Hazard pay! Are we serious? What type of a world are we living in where everyone is demanding Hazard pay to do their job in the same environment as everyone else?
Well, it seems to be a world where the new environment, created by the liberals, has now been taken over by the Unions to take further advantage of everyone.
This is what happens when we allow Unions to run weak politicians... Science is thrown out the window in exchange for ripping off the taxpayers and hurting our kids.
It's time to get back to work and start teaching our kids! Everyone should be demanding schools open up now. It's time to start being more concerned about your own child's education than other people making nonsensical demands to do the jobs they are being paid for. They've had a year being at home, how much further behind are you willing to let your child get?
