Fire 'Em

Services for Real Estate Pros

Subtitle: Frickin Wimps

Here we go again. The people of the Great State of Wisconsin elected a Governor to go out and do a job. He is considering making the school teachers pay a whole whopping 12% of their health care premiums. God forbid.He is also considering having them pay for 50% of their pensions. Oh my. What a rough world.

Being the mature folks that they are, the teachers, in conjunction with their union, have decided to take a couple days of sick outs.

Can you say air traffic controllers? It is time. Just fire them. They are public servants and as such should not be able to go on strike. Besides what they are getting fired up about is a joke. most of us who live and work in the real world have already become adults and pay for ourselves. We do not ask our mommy and daddy taxpayers to do it for us.

Teachers of Wisconsin- it is time to man up, or woman up, but quit crying over this thing.

Get back to work or get fired. Then you will see what it is like in the real world.

Nice post! I agree - that's what Ronald Reagan would probably do too!

I think the Wisconsin Leg is voting today on this. The taxpayers are tired of footing the bill for teachers pensions and healthcare when they themselves do not have it that good.

This is just the typical response from unions. They still don't think they are part of the problem.

What's this country coming to?  I for one cannot believe that anyone should be required to pay for anything, but that is just me...

They go on strike because they know they're still getting paid.  Others show up for work because they have to earn a living. 

The Dems hiding out in a resort in Illinois ought to be ashamed, but that's just wishful thinking.
