The teacher strike in Chicago continues, with neither side close to a resolution. Their fight is not only about Chicago school system, but also about the attacks on working class people. This fight is about the injustice across the country that started the occupy movements. Its about the constant abuse and
indifference that the private and
public sectors are going through. Its about the war on women and equal education for our children. Its about the disrespect for the unions and trying to eliminate the middle class. Its about getting rid of collective bargaining. Its a fight we should all want to win.
The country is watching for the outcome of these negotiations, going on day 4. It will set the tone for the rest of the battle. I support the Chicago Teacher’s Union. Their fight is definitely our Fight. In SOLIDARITY!
