STRIKE: Teachers won’t lose anything

I was extremely disturbed to read about the “poor” Tacoma teachers not getting paid for the days they were out on strike (TNT, 9-24).

I have news for these people: That’s what strikes are about. You are not paid when you are on strike!

The teachers will still get their money. That’s the problem with teacher strikes: They really don’t lose anything.
