“The only person who had worse press coverage this week than organized labor was Moammar Gadhafi—and he had to bomb his own people to get it.”
Bonus quote from the link by a former NEA general counsel explaining why his union is so effective:
“It is not because we care about children; and it is not because we have a vision of a great public school for every child. [It is] because we have power. And we have power because there are more than 3.2 million people who are willing to pay us hundreds of million of dollars in dues each year because they believe that . . . the union can protect their rights and advance their interests.”
I couldn’t have said it better myself; screw the interests and rights of the chillllldren, Big Labor is all about Big Power.
