    What a disruption.

    Its obvious they care more about their own monetary compensation than the students.

    Too bad those striking teachers can't be fired. I know if I walked off the job I would not have a job to come back to.

    Believe it or not, it's all of the union faculty besides 1 who came and taught today, but I don't have her as a professor.

    It is really hard to understand how striking can exist in this day and age with such a high level of unemployment.
