Political Nutz

Observations on the pathetic state of American politics

NFL vs. Teachers

What a perversion of priorities?  While governors are busy blaming state employees for decades of mismanagement by pension fund managers, NFL players with an average salary of $1.8 million are threatening to strike if they don’t get a bigger share of owners’ profits.  How is it that it’s OK for some of the wealthiest people in the country to unionize and bargain collectively but folks who touch our lives every day like teachers, refuse workers, bus drivers, firemen, etc., should settle for whatever some fat cat politicians decide to give them?
