Posted on 02/17/2011 1:21:39 PM PST by Lonesome in Massachussets
Since Wisconsin teachers called in "sick" and later appeared at political rallies at the statehouse and appeared on TV, haven't they violated criminal statutes and shouldn't the governor have criminal charges brought against them, and have them fired. Forthwith?
Isn't it against the law for a civil servant to make a false health claim and absent ones self from one's place of work? Criminal malingering.
In Texas, on top of the various long vacation periods, my wife gets 10 payed sick days from the state and 5 from her district every year and they accrue without limit. At her school it is not uncommon for teachers nearing retirement to have a year’s worth of sick leave built up. They have some minor surgery and just never come back to work, retiring when the sick time runs out.
The Teacher’s Union contract in Malden prohibits the attendance of teachers to be reported to HR in city Hall.
No need to do that, just stop paying them.
Doesn’t really sound like a criminal offense to me. More like a civil issue. The state should dock their pay, and discipline them. There are probably terms in the contract about how teachers can be disciplined, and those need to be followed, but they should treat them as harshly as the contract allows.
I’m a teacher. Sometimes health problems happen. (forgive me, but I never wanted it)
Yes sometimes they do, my wife teaches third grade and was sick Monday.
I am sure the students of Wisconsin have learned a lesson they will not soon forget.
Then he could simply do that which the unions are forcing him to do, fire 5,000 of their members to balance the budget.
Just a thought, I wonder if a state referendem, (vote), on the Governor's plan would give him more political capital to do what he needs to do? The people who pay these so-called "little people" are now making less than the "little people" are. So there is a new class of "little people", it is the PRIVATE SECTOR workers who pay these overpayed union thugs and dumbed-down cretens who are posing as "teachers".
