A B.Ed is about as tough to get as a certificate in basket weaving. Seriously the way the teachers bitch and moan you would think they were rocket scientists. I fully expected many of them to walk across the harbor on water i.e. Moses.
Bottom line is this. The NDP cut 65 million from the education budget yet did not touch the NSTU golden handshake AND gave them an 8% raise. Stay with me people. Although there were a few token protests from teachers there was NOTHING close to the magnitude of what we see now. Ultimately the teachers happily signed that deal. The question is this. IF the union was so concerned with teaching conditions, and IF it is not about the money and it is "All about the kids", why did the teachers allow the NDP to cut 65 million from their budget and roll over and sign a contract that gave them an 8% raise? The current government has put money into the budget, not taken it away, yet teachers are all up in arms because they are not going to get the raise they want. I ask you. Is it REALLY about the kids?
Macneil has my support. Already the pigs at NSGEU are lined up at the trough drooling with their "me too" attitude. Nurses will be next. Can't have one union getting something they do not now can we? I mean seriously people? You have an awesome pension plan propped up constantly by taxpayers (many of whom have none). You get 35 grand in a "Thank you for living off the taxpayer" when you retire and a $5000.00 raise when you take a bird course. Most teachers were partying for a week when they learned they secured their first full time teaching gig yet now whine and whine about how tough it is. Comical.
So here are the facts teachers. Only 20% of NS education students graduating from university actually get a full time teaching gig. Something tells me that if your 76 grand salary and 35 grand golden handshake is not enough there would be no problem, finding an ass to put behind your desk. Comprendez?
LMAO!! Wow!! What a fucking newsflash!! A union covering the asses of other self-entitled union members! I mean really Coast...Who KNEW!?!? heaven fucking forbid a government may actually not hand a union everything it demands. I understand however what a shock this could be to the unions after an NDP givernment.
Seriously little boy or little girl. You have no clue nor do you care. All you care about is that you are missing out on drama class or basketball. You and yoru parents all support the teachers, not because you agree with the ABSURD benefits package they get, but because you are being inconvenienced and we cannot have that. We will hear the same thing when Halifax Transit goes on strike again because 75 grand a year is not enough. People like you will say "Give them what they want they deserve it". One day you will be a taxpayer in this province and you will realize how short sighted your stance was.
This is what I find funny. The left wing feminists who repeatedly bashed Trump and supported Clinton to state one fact. Hilary is married to Bill who has a storied history of using his power to fuck young interns and has been accused of rape. Quite the glass house you live in there Hilary. But hey I guess that is different eh?
