Wow you have a lot of ignorance in this comment so I will just address just a couple. 1) Waitresses can make FAR more then minimum wage via tips (most of which is tax free cause they don't report it when they are cash tips). I have friends who payed their way through college waiting at Olive Garden and even stayed there for a year after getting out cause it payed so well. Besides if they weren't doing well they'd be working at McDonalds for minimum wage. 2) for hundreds of years people have been pouring into this country, and yes this was even the case BEFORE unions, and they didn't come to make LESS money! : )

The Chicago teachers strike is over, but the public didn't win. Schools will still transfer bad teachers to other schools because it's nearly impossible to fire them. When bad teachers go from school to school, principals call it "the dance of the lemons." It would be funny if those teachers didn't slowly wreck children's lives.

The basic issue is: Who decides how to manage a workplace? Unions say it's good that they protect American workers from arbitrary dismissal and make sure everyone is treated equally.

But it's not good.

Rules that "protect" government workers from arbitrary dismissal and require everyone...
