BC Teachers On Strike "For The Children"

Today's poll question; why do you think British Columbia's teachers are on strike? Is it for the money, or for the children? Most of the commentary coming from the teachers is that they are fighting to give your children a better education, fighting for special needs, that this job action is not about the teachers, it's about the children. What do you think? Personally I'm of the opinion that it's all about the money, trying to get a 15% wage increase during a time of fiscal austerity. No question there are great teachers out there who have a sincere desire to see their students succeed, but that's not why you walk off the job. They're trying to get paid.


  1. I fail to see how not teaching children will help them succeed.
    It is only about the money, was always about the money JMO

  2. Only red necks voting. Ice woman must be Christie Clarke - are you her husband?

    1. I do not find Christy Clark attractive, nor did I support her bid to be Premier. I endorsed George Abbott, bet you don't like that guy Anon...

  3. Read Bill 22 to be informed, then make an educated comment.

  4. "It's for the children" card is always played...the vision of those cute little faces with big wonderous eyes craving knowledge is supposted to tug at your heartstrings and grant the greedy unions all they demand. "it's for the children" line is used by groups that want you to believe that it isn't about them in the present but for the future and for the sake of "the children"...

  5. It's about the money more more always more and their meeee toooo clause
