According To Obama, NC Teachers Should Be Fired If They Walk Off

North Carolina teachers want more money from taxpayers for doing the jobs they voluntarily applied for and tool

(Raleigh N&O) A proposed statewide teacher walk-out to protest pay and working conditions is getting a mixed response from the people it is supposed to benefit.

Some think skipping school en masse could give teachers leverage in budgeting decisions, while others see the proposed disruption as a set-back to their relationships with parents, administrators and students.

Word of the proposed Nov. 4 protest first spread via a pseudonymous web posting and now has a Wake County teacher as a central advocate.

According to Obama

(National Review) During his speech today, the president said something rather strange. “If a worker shut down a manufacturing plant until they got what they wanted, they’d be fired,” Obama shouted.

    don’t these teachers have a union to represent them and their grievances? How many skips does a student have to take before the school punishes them? I will bet their contract does not allow for unexcused absences. Enforce the Contract.

  2. Well, you know the teacher’s unions don’t care about actual law.

    Obama spends his time on the golf course and in the WH lounge upstairs, not working.

    I’m still trying to figure out how taxpayer funded workers are allowed to unionize against taxpaying citizens??!?

    There should be NO tax payer funded unions in state or federal.

    When I was employed by the US Fish & Wildlife service, I had to sign a promise to not start or join a union or else I’d be fired. So, why are other federal agencies allowed to unionize?
