Teachers should be happy with their jobs

“Should teachers be allowed to strike?”

The question was asked, and apparently 74 per cent of people showed support, where the other 26 per cent said “no.”

My question is: Who exactly was asked? In my opinion, those who said “yes” to the strike must clearly have secure and well-paid jobs, and in most cases, part of unionized institutions.

If those who live off small business were to be asked, undoubtedly the answers would be much different. People need to stop demanding via strikes, and accept how good they truly have it, especially in today’s economy.

When I went to school in the 1950s, there were 48 kids in my class, and as far as I know, all of us turned out to be good people. I’m sure it wasn’t easy for teachers those days either.
