Yeah, We Have No Idea
Here’s another instance of the disconnect of the labor unions:
“We think it’s an outrage,” Jane Sessums, president of the Central Falls Teachers Union, said, as hundreds of union supporters from across the state began flowing into Jenks Park. “Our members are feeling awful, devastated. How would you feel, being terminated?”
One gets the impression that, on some level, they don’t believe that anybody ever gets laid off anywhere. Some construction companies in the Newport area have laid off almost as many employees as work in Central Falls. The worst part is that the teachers could have avoided the whole thing if the unions weren’t so intent on standing their ground in hopes of averting a statewide conflagration of concessions and reform.
