Chicago teachers are on strike
Chicago teachers have the highest average salary of any city at $76,000 a year before benefits. The average family in the city only earns $47,000 a year. Yet the teachers rejected a 16 percent salary increase over four years at a time when most families are not getting any raises or are looking for work.
It's one thing for airline pilots with 100K salaries to strike. They get their incomes from actual commerce, and not from taxpayers. Those Chicago teachers can suck on chalk for all I care.
