Teachers’ unions hold American children hostage
Last Resistance – Frank Camp – 7/14/2013
There is a definite difference between private sector unions and public sector unions. Many people don’t recognize the difference, or even know that there is a difference at all. On one hand, you have a group of workers forming a union in order to balance out the power of their superiors. They band together so that they can make legitimate demands, without fear of personal reprisal. The superior will do what they can to limit the cost of the demands made, while attempting to keep the workers happy. It’s a balancing act.
On the other hand, you have government employees, whose ultimate superior is an elected official. The public union makes demands of the state, and the political leader, which are not counterbalanced by the restraint of good business practices. The elected official gives the unions whatever they want in exchange for their votes on Election Day. This cycle is unbroken—so long as a Liberal is in office—and our taxes continue to rise so that politicians can appease the unions and buy votes. It’s criminal.
The teachers’ union is a perfect example of corruption. First, teachers have no choice but to join the union; which is unsettling to begin with. Second, the union does nothing to better educate children. Rather than trying to innovate, so that our education system could improve, the union simply does what is best for itself. Union bosses blast anyone who would dare to mention vouchers–or any programs that would improve education—and continue to suck more money from the taxpayers.
Like Scott Walker said, the unions are operating within an archaic framework.
Public sector unions are killing our country. Like a parasite that depends on the survival of its host, public sector unions are keeping us alive just enough to take advantage of us. I want to thrive. But in order to thrive, we must eliminate the public sector unions; especially the teachers’ union.
