Why are we ignoring the massive ($100 billion) wage theft that is happening right now? Active and retired teachers are the main targets. Specific funds are targeted by specific billionaires and financial service industry investors.
Active teachers seem to accept paying into funds that are guaranteed to make money for fund managers while nearly guaranteeing massive losses for teachers. Retirees seem to be in denial. Non-teachers don’t want to believe they will be next. Where is the rage? Where are the vast crowds opposing this grand theft?
CCSS, school closings, teacher evaluations linked to tests designed to fail children, rigged pension theft, media parrots, Pearson, Gates, Koch, Broad, Walton and corporate elected puppets (Democrapublicans) are lined up for a coup unlike anything seen in American history. It’s all about the money and power.
