I actually like a couple of Nickleback songs.

/haters gonna hate

Ouch. Dude. That's cold blooded.

The bars in the Loop love striking Chicago Teachers.

And their leader, Jabba the Hutt.

Remind me what the actual dispute is about again? There was a planned 4%/year pay hike a couple years back for teachers, then there was a city-wide hiring/salary freeze for unrelated reasons, and now that it's over the new proposal is for 2%/year? Something like that?

As a teacher, I'd probably feel like management incapable of using CPI-rooted cost of living adjustments like everyone else was probably dumb enough to like Nickelback, too.

Why not just accuse him of being a Canadian while you're at it.

Because he can prove he's not. He has a birth certificate - you just can't see it. But, trust him, it's real.

The 4% a year pay scale hike is still on the table. The issues are increased hours a day and days a year plus student-teacher ratio.

Those sick bastards.

Not knowing anything about Nickleback, I don't understand the sick tag. Do they suck that bad?

Damn, out of bounds.
 
2012-09-11 10:33:12 AM
Hah!

A local radio station prefaced playing a new Nickelback track a few years ago with the warning: "It appears Nickelback's in heat again."

I like it when the DJ basically admits on air that what is about to be played is crap. Too bad there's nothing they can do about it... Damn you Clear Channel!

*gasp!* how could they.
 
2012-09-11 10:34:46 AM
Instead of using the students as pawns, the teachers would be better off if they just refused to do their non-teaching work -- stopped coaching sports, supervising extracurricular activities, showing up on in-service days, and then picketed during their non-classroom time.

Honestly, as it is they're doing more to turn public against them and against the concept of public-sector unionism than they are helping their case.

Let's find out...
Link to Nickelback's greatest hits played simultaneously.

/which is the link I was too lazy to find the Boobies :P

It isn't just about money. Rahm jacked their hours under his plan, a unilateral move. But listen to the strikers: They are concerned with losers under Rahm's neo-liberal schema.

They suck more than a fugly Las Vegas prostitute.

"Nickleback sucks so bad that....." jokes are right up there with "Cops sure love donuts!" and "Tastes like Chicken!" in the pantheon of lazy humor.

Strikers aren't reviled here as they are in the scab-lands. The right to bargain collectively is a given here.
 
2012-09-11 10:38:01 AM
Teachers are greedy, militant baistards. Do you want them teaching your children those values?

"Lazy" is such a harsh word. I prefer to be called "energy efficient."

Don't worry for Rahm's kids, they attend Chicago Lab.

i think i see your problem in understanding this: it comes from your belief that you are ENTITLED to a cost of living increase "like everyone else".

newsflash genius - "everyone else" hasn't got any kind of raise lately. in case you haven't noticed, and by your post I don't think you have, there has been a bit of a clusterfark in the economy. (but as you pointed out, that is one of those "unrelated" issues)

/the bubble you live in must be nice, but i can only imagine how you lament "those greedy bastard bankers" & how they screwed us all.

When used with good timing, even a chicken crossing the road can still be funny, Captain Sandy Vagina.

so instead of a work stoppage, they should just do their job poorly?
excellent idea.

They already tried that idea, and Rahm didn't even flinch.

"Nickelback is one of the most commercially successful Canadian groups, having sold more than 50 million albums worldwide, ranking as the 11th best selling music act of the 2000s, and is the 2nd best selling foreign act in the U.S. behind The Beatles for the 2000s." Link

All the way to the bank...

Bubble Butt michele o's new lunch program doesn't seem to be impacting these fatties. I guess being a teacher in the murder capitol means, do as I say not as I eat.

You know that thing in the news about this day 11 years ago? Their first album dropped on the same day.

Coincidence? you decide.
