Protesting for Broken Promises

12:53 PM

Teachers are protesting in Nashville today. My friends are out there. There hasn't been a raise in decades despite contracts claiming there would be. Teachers are having to work second jobs in some cases, just to be able to afford to teach. That's so backwards. Why is it that these people, these men and women who devote their lives to children HAVE to protest for a fair living wage. The government isn't helping. They have NO clue what teachers go through on a day-to-day basis, nor do they seem to care. Without teachers, these politicians would not be where they are today. They have forgotten the men and women who worked for them. Shameful. 

Nashville Teachers are requesting a 15% raise (even though they need 18% to pay for the rise in hiving costs).

***Update: Teachers were only awarded a %3 raise. Shameful.
