definitely was for the best and didn't require a strike.
And with that attitude, what kind of employee will he be, if and
when he returns to work when the strike is settled? I really hope
that he treats his customers with respect and courtesy -- even the
ones who crossed the picket lines. The union keeps telling us they
are fighting the grocery stores. That anger should not be directed at
Behaving as he does, maybe it's not difficult to believe they
don't want him back at work.

the cheap executive officers and force the employees to shop at
cheap-priced stores with the lower wages?

Students already have too many days off
I have two major problems with the possibility of two more
official holidays in the Glendale Unified School District.

remember ever getting a free Friday so the teachers could work over
their report cards (I do love you, teachers, but you do have more
days off than mine did years ago); or staff development days that
kept a student home from school; or one day a week when you could
