    doing to teachers for decades - not paying them properly, squeezing their benefits, publicly denegrating them and then ... the final kick in the teeth:  running ads trying to encourage people to become teachers!

    As a retired public worker myself, I can relate.  I did the jobs of 2-3 other nurses for less pay than I would have gotten in the private sector and still we get called lazy and undeserving of our pensions when we're old enough and broken enough to retire.  

    Of course, this is part of the long term plan to privatize all government services so corporations can make profits from the taxpayer money that gets funnelled their way.

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
