Union fights for teacher support

This AP article illustrates just how important unions are these days.  There's a battle in Milwaukee school system to reinstate health coverage for Viagra.

"A consultant for the school board has estimated that reinstating the drug benefit would cost $786,000 per year — the cost to keep perhaps a dozen first-year teachers employed."

"Other options such as penile pumps and implants included in the plans "are far less desirable than oral medication," the filing said. "
This at a time when the school system is having financial difficulties.
"Citing a "financial crisis" caused by exploding benefit costs and revenue shortfalls, the district's outgoing superintendent proposed laying off 682 employees in April."

Do male teachers really need free Viagra when they spend all day teaching teenage girls?  I know some parents who would much prefer eunuchs.

Now that's just weird. Where are they getting those numbers? Are there that many men who have ED?

white: Unions are no longer useful in the US. They must make up causes to justify their existence.

holly: There may be that many men who THINK they have ED.

Is that a union card in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me?

I'm sorry, I don't know what came over me...
