“Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot deserves credit for standing up to the Chicago Teachers Union. But the fact that so many Chicago teachers were willing to abandon their students in the first place is disgraceful. The next time they walk off the job in violation of the law, she shouldn’t negotiate with them — she should fire them. … How is it that grocery clerks showed up for work throughout the pandemic — even before vaccines were available — but teachers refused to do the same? Apparently, grocery clerks believe they are essential workers, while Chicago’s teachers do not.” (01/12/22)
