They Just Want Us to Learn
Teachers are opposed to the largest, most successful retailer on the planet. Sure, they have kept the cost of living down for hundreds of millions of customers, but have they met the needs of teachers? Apparently not.
About 20 teachers handed out “report cards” to reporters that gave Arkansas-based Wal-Mart failing grades for allegedly paying low wages, failing to provide affordable health care, discriminating against women, violating child labor laws and shifting more than $2.5 billion a year in health care and welfare costs for its underpaid and underinsured workers to U.S. taxpayers.
Teachers are not known for their high salaries, and a company like Wal-Mart extends their wages. That may be too complex an idea for their leadership to comprehend.
Do you know who is giving teachers a bad name? Their lea(D)ership, and the fact that soooooo many follow.
