St. Louis, MO: A new survey this monthconducted by the nonprofit Teacher Freedom shows that a growing number of younger teachers (aged 35 and under) want the freedom to negotiate their salaries and pay packages without Union involvement.
“A new generation of teachers are finding that the one-size-fits-all negotiating and political mafia style of national unions just don’t work for them,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “This is really no surprise, as giant monopoly unions have entrenched themselves into particular industries, almost completely eliminating freedom and choice from certain industries.
“Some states have already started to move against public union monopolies and the rising generation of young teachers might just fuel that fire even hotter. Public unions have become a particular blight on America, taking hundreds of millions and funneling them to partisan political causes. We are ready to help these teachers fight for a better free market and decimate the influence of these huge political mafias we call labor unions.”
