Retired Teacher T-Shirt

G8rFan's post made me think of this T-Shirt I saw. It said:

Prayers for CA Teachers

We don't strike anymore. Our union just finds a way to "ratify" on disappointing contracts. I'm not really mad about it. Striking won't get us what we deserve either. The only version of...
