    /there I said it.
  • Chrissakes don't f*ck with teachers. It's a sh*tty enough job as it is and our "society" of shaved monkeys is getting more retarded by the second.
  • I don't think this guy understands what "work to rule" means.

    Thank you for that valuable contribution. I'm sure it will start a lively intellectual round table.
  • And yeah... exhibit A: The Boobies.
  • British Unions make American Unions look like the workforce of the Triangle Shirt Company.
  • Some say that communism is "shared misery" as opposed to "shared prosperity". What would union-busting qualify as?

  • Sure, you support the dismantling of organized labor, you deserve the slavery you will receive.
  • You spelled Wisconsin wrong subs.
  • When I taught in public education, my contract was about three pages long. Most of it was obvious stuff about child abuse and so on. If I "worked to rule," I wouldn't have to attend after-school functions, go on field trips, chaperone anything, and work from 8-3, essentially. Most weeks, I ended up working from around 7 to 4 or 5 in the evening, and, at least once a month, I had to return for an after-school event that often lasted until 8 or 9 o'clock, with a return to work early the next morning. Of course, during the "summers off," I was expected to attend meetings, have inservice days, and so on.

    So, yes, teachers doing the "work to rule" thing would really expose just how underpaid and underappreciated teachers are.
  • Gove is a farking idiot. He's a fundie who sent a bible "from the secretary of state for education" to every school in England and Wales. After people complained, he had to get donors to pay the government back. His plans are universally Ill considered.

    What gets me is that he's up in arms about teachers doing what they're paid to do. They're not striking, they're just not taking it in the arse to paper over the gaps that the government have left in the education system.

    Before the USians get started, Thatcher broke the unions, we have about four teachers unions, if you include Scottish ones and there's no such thing as a closed shop in the UK.
  • So strict compliance with the letter of the law only OK if you're evading taxes but not for teachers?

    /Thatcher did enough towards unions to hand the country to its bankers and colonies
    //Her unionbusting contributed to the lack of British character in England

    I support the dismantling of government employee organized labor. Who are they organizing against? Not some evil corporation but the tax payers.

    Unions still serve a purpose in some private sector industries like coal mining.

    Bullshiat. People are working jobs, its their right to band together to ensure that they are treated fairly. Who pays them is immaterial. Do you demand that companies sell their goods to public bodies at cost? Of course not, so why should teachers sell their labour for less than it's worth?
  • DuncanMhor: Who pays them is immaterial.


    No it's not. When the government is funded voluntarily, then they can have their union.
  • I often wonder about those that elect such obvious assholes to supposedly represent them in their government.

    Once they win their seat the "leader" appoints them cabinet ministers with their own little agenda and they proceed to wreak havoc. We have has a series of "education ministers" in Ontario who were absolute dicks or biatches once they got into power (one was even a HIGH SCHOOL DROPOUT!) totally ruining the relationship between the teachers and the government to this day.

    How do these voters feel about themselves for putting the little 'x' beside the name of a total asshole?

    Socialize the misery, privatize the prosperity.
  • Midnight Oil has been warning us for decades that the union jack's in flames but did we listen? nooooooooooooooooooooo

    /spent a few days combing the laws of every state for their labor rules, then collating that with incomes and teacher/public employee union protections. Results were interesting.

    Another filter pwn. Two in one day!

    Why is it that Christian Conservatives, in general, always try to convert people to their beliefs using government means? No matter what the country is, could be the US, England, or at the most extreme Uganda; Christians Conservatives never seem to have a problem with government as long as they can use it to impose their belief structures. Yet turn around the other cheek, with a country that supports freedom of all beliefs and non-belief, is suddenly an "affront to Christianity" and must stop "persecuting Christians." These fundamentalist Christians are afraid of freedom in the purest sense of the word, but not their idea of freedom* (the asterisk meaning a government that doesn't force all people to either adopt, or at the least abide by, fundamentalist Christian rules).
